Random Thread #2864 - Korivak

KorivakPosted: 09-08-2001 02:40:52
   In the last few days, kwerkey's birthday thread and MissCheetah's introduction thread have been very popular and hideously off topic.  So rather than crap up other people's threads or make a bunch of individual threads full of sillyness, I made this...Thread #2864.  Feel free to post whatever pops into your head, no matter how silly or pointless.
KorivakPosted: 09-08-2001 02:46:47
   I spent about five hours playing Final Fantasy IV today.  The graphics are so-so (far below other PS2 games, at least), and the sounds and music are primitive, but the game is still pretty #### cool.  When you don't have much to work with in terms of what's on screen, there is a lot more focus on the story line and other such imagination based things.
   Does anyone else have a game that's a little old, but still a favourite?

MissCheetahPosted: 09-08-2001 09:47:11
I am still a Diablo 2 fan even though I realize that it is mostly pointless mouse clicking.  I enjoy mindless destruction sometimes though.  I really should learn to play Baldurs Gate 2 or Black & White. I have both.  I am off to play an old game today.  D&D.  I have a half elf mage/thief.  She is very cool.  I am also not really awake yet.  *stumbles off in search of more tea and a shower*

Every day my heart dies, and every morning it is reborn. Enough to limp through the day, a zombie of a soul. Each day is consumed by the choking greyness of the void within me.  I pass by people, carefree, enjoying a walk, going about their daily lives, and I resent them and their trivial concerns.  I hate the sun, it is no longer my friend, I wish I were blind so that people would pity me.  I am drowning, and the ships passing by ignore my cries.


Maybe I will earn, instead, an unacreddited college degree (5149)

Of course the graphics in FFIV aren't terribly good. It's a Super Nintendo game.

But man, when I get some free time, I've really got to get around to playing that some more.

KorivakPosted: 09-08-2001 10:58:31
"I am still a Diablo 2 fan even though I realize that it is mostly pointless mouse clicking."

   The only reason I was playing FFIV is because daav's girlfriend was playing Diablo II...They are both a lot of fun and very relaxing due to thier somewhat simple natures.

MaverickPosted: 09-08-2001 11:37:42
Korivak - You had originally made 3 posts in 8 minutes. Why did you just includer all three statemnts in the same post? Why?
BrawnfirePosted: 09-08-2001 11:44:20
Because he = evil.

And Osiris made me laugh.  In a bad way.  In a sort of "God, this man needs something to look forward to."  If I had the ability, I'd give him happiness.

On a brighter note, I ate a raw clam.

SHUT UP, IT WAS GROSS.

KorivakPosted: 09-08-2001 11:44:40
   First, I laid out the general idea of the thread, then I made a post to start discussion, then I made a post to set a precedent for random, pointless silliness.
   It seems to have worked well, because now there are some people talking about old games, and Lord Trey being silly and on a different topic (but not actually offtopic).
   I always have a reason for what I do, no matter how strange it seems at the time.
   Oh, yes, and I was trying to get in the Top 40 posters, which I did! :)
80-1002268887Posted: 09-08-2001 11:52:54
Oh, and 200 posts and I've beat Tossy. =) 900 and I'm in the top 5!
Sexay ShawnPosted: 09-08-2001 11:53:48
If Osiris' post was 'silly,' then I suppose I could note that it's 1:00 PM, and I just woke up -- feeling completely alone, despite the people around me.
KorivakPosted: 09-08-2001 11:57:02
   Things don't have to be silly...
   Go get a hug from Sam!...

Yeah, I'm here if you need me. =)

I may be going out to buy socks later, but I'll be here most of today.

Sexay ShawnPosted: 09-08-2001 12:02:33
I don't want to hug Sam!.
80-1002268887Posted: 09-08-2001 12:03:50
Fine fine... No hug for you then.

I'll just hug... Brawnfire.

I don't recall saying it was silly, Shawn.  I laughed in a bad way.  A sympathetic way.  Don't make me castrate you.

*huggles Sam!*  (I am also naked.)

KorivakPosted: 09-08-2001 13:54:48
   You know, I was just thinking in the shower:  "my thread really, really needs some big ugly graphics so that it can have a hideously bad horizontal scroll..."
XelPosted: 09-08-2001 13:57:42
You know, that is a good idea.
KorivakPosted: 09-08-2001 13:58:33
   In other news, my room gets so unpleasently hot with KC runnning for weeks at a time...I'm going down to the (significantly cooler) living room to play FFIV very soon...
XelPosted: 09-08-2001 13:59:44
Hrm, how do I make the background save as transparent in Paint Shop Pro 7? I have it set as transparent background, but if I save it as a gif it just always turns it to white?
KorivakPosted: 09-08-2001 13:59:48
   Ahh, much better...thanks.
Sexay ShawnPosted: 09-08-2001 14:03:04
Yes, but by editing the image and not the post, he has cleverly covered up his stupidity, and now he won't be banned!
KorivakPosted: 09-08-2001 14:04:19
   As long as I don't have to wait until page two to have my thread work properly again, I honestly don't give a shit...
XelPosted: 09-08-2001 14:07:05
*cough*

He was actually linking those pics off of my website, henceforth it was me who made the horizontal scroll bar so long (not purposely, I didn't mean to make the image that big when its repeated, forgot it was repeated)

KorivakPosted: 09-08-2001 14:10:18
   It's ok, I still love you...
*poof*
Sexay ShawnPosted: 09-08-2001 14:12:11
Yes, but he also linked to the same image about five/six times in a row, and then posted the link again in a post almost directly below it.  Neither post contained any other content (excluding a smiley) outside of the images...
XelPosted: 09-08-2001 14:14:12
Oh well, as long as he isn't here I'll have fun changing around the images some more.

**giggles**

XelPosted: 09-08-2001 14:21:28
Noo, just when I had finally completed my image!

ThanatosPosted: 09-08-2001 14:35:14
Final Fantasy Tactics kicks so much ass.

I only got two problems with it.

A) Why is the drawn character art prettier than the character sprites?

B) Where the #### are their noses?!

ßetaMantisPosted: 09-08-2001 18:24:02
I guess I don't.  Maybe 'twas before my time.  Did it happen over a month ago?  *grins*
Eye of the NightPosted: 09-08-2001 18:27:25
Not sure, but I wouldn't be suprised if it was over a year ago ;)
Sexay ShawnPosted: 09-08-2001 18:32:59
Mantits, it was a rather silly (yet massive) thread which commenced in the older version of this forum (a very long time ago) in which people would type sentences with the word 'NOT' (in capital letters) in them.  This word was meant to be ignored.  If I were to say 'Nighteye is NOT a twit,' for example, it would mean that I am stating that he is, indeed, a twit...  It grew old, fast.  At least, I felt it did...
TermPosted: 09-08-2001 18:35:45
Oh yes.
It was NOT amusing.
Well, atleast the first page was NOT.
Sexay ShawnPosted: 09-08-2001 18:37:56
How many pages did that 'NOT' thread have before it disappeared?  Twelve?  Sixteen?
TermPosted: 09-08-2001 18:39:00
I don't know. First one was one of the most collosal threads in Rstefan01 history, second one was about 6 I think.
ßetaMantisPosted: 09-08-2001 18:41:39
That sounds nearly NOT fun.  *grins*
TermPosted: 09-08-2001 18:52:11
mm'kay beta, that sentence doesn't make much sense with or without the NOT.

TermPosted: 09-08-2001 19:01:04
Nope. And any "secret new world order hidden meaning that only the four horsemen can understand that will eventually bring about the ultimate destruction of the world and all civilization as we know it once it is properly identified by common forumers, and if we were to realize the horrible, HORRIBLE truth behind all of Betamantis' posts our simple human minds were to instantly snap, because the unearthly secrets that are hidden within those plain words are so utterly maddening they were never meant for mortal eyes to see" crap passed right through/over me, too.
Sexay ShawnPosted: 09-08-2001 19:04:18
Now there's a sentence that makes absolutely no sense!  I don't think he even closed the quotation mark!
TermPosted: 09-08-2001 19:05:50
Well, I guess i didn't make much sense, but i did close the qoutation mark. Read through it a few times and you will see the HORRIBLE ASTONISHING TRUTH and the meaning of life and stuff
ProphetPosted: 09-08-2001 19:07:58
I don't see where you close the qoutation
Sexay ShawnPosted: 09-08-2001 19:08:00
Nah.  I don't think I will.
BrawnfirePosted: 09-08-2001 19:11:35
Right after "see" and before "crap".  Hyphenation would have made it clearer.  But it made me laugh.
ßetaMantisPosted: 09-08-2001 19:11:52
I don't see how my sentence doesn't make sense . . .
ProphetPosted: 09-08-2001 19:14:51
I think it makes sense.

It goes from almost not being fun, to almost being fun.

In other words, it doesn't sound fun :p

TermPosted: 09-08-2001 19:17:50
I said it doens't make Much sense,
because it'z teh inc0rectz gramm0rz.

That sounds nearly not fun
Hmm. Nope doesn't work.
That sounds nearly fun
Nope, not this either.  "That nearly sounds fun" would have been correct though.

ßetaMantisPosted: 09-08-2001 19:21:08
But it doesn't nearly "sound fun".    It sounds "NEARLY fun".

No cents indeed.

Eye of the NightPosted: 09-08-2001 19:27:20
Well, I suppose I could explain the origin of that infamous incident. I was in the mood for creating a piece of art, and somehow thought about a painting from monet, depicting a pipe, along with the words: 'ce n'est pas une pipe'. Translated: This is not a pipe.
Which is true, as it is actually a painting of a pipe, not a pipe itself.

So, then I got the idea of making a thread titled 'This is NOT a thread'.
That, too, is true, as it is only a sequence of zeros and ones, converted by the computer into an image that is called a thread. The factual data of were the post ended up, however, was not a thread; only data yet to be interpreted.

It shows how unaccurate people can be in their wordings, their interpretations...*grin* Monet's painting more so than my variant on it, though...

80-1002268887Posted: 09-09-2001 11:19:58
If it makes you feel any better, the reason it seems quiet here is probably cause people are sleeping in and whatnot.

That, and there's no voice chat room.

EoduinPosted: 09-09-2001 11:23:27

Korivak
Now, now. Just because you only have attributes while everybody else here has tags is no reason to take it out on me. If you give your attribute the attention it needs, eventually it will grow into a tag. All it needs is time.

No, not here. For Hod sakes, there are child elements watching.

I wouldn't be so certain that this thread will NOT be locked down...

80-1002268887Posted: 09-10-2001 20:04:26
This thread won't be locked down. It keeps the random off-topic crap mostly out of the other threads. =P
KorivakPosted: 09-10-2001 20:07:01
   So far, so good...but it is just a silly thread on a silly forum...I think I could live without it...
Eye of the NightPosted: 09-10-2001 20:08:07
So you are led to believe. In all actuality, other thread go just as much off-topic as they ever did, but people are less aware because they believe it's less off-topic. Furthermore, this thread trains posters in off-topic posting, which increases the chances of going more off-topic in other threads, and noticing it less through acclimatisation.
Think about it ;)
80-1002268887Posted: 09-10-2001 20:08:46
The thread that got closed today was only so because there was already one in the forum, it had just fallen off the threadlist.

One of the alternatives would be to fight fire with fire, AKA post off-off-topic. Whenever off-topic posting occurs...

ßetaMantisPosted: 09-11-2001 09:16:00
That's what we're doing.  Just we're making a thread for it.
Eye of the NightPosted: 09-11-2001 09:22:14
No, you misinterpret. Off-off-topic isn't simply another off-topic topic. Off-off-topic is not off-topic.

Hmm.

It's a claymore in the image of a video card.

Yummy.

Sexay ShawnPosted: 09-15-2001 16:23:08
Random thought:  Tridus at one point posted that he was bisexual in a prank to confuse the various forumers on April Fool's Day.  At the time, many said 'Oh, I've suspected this for a long time!' based on his musical tastes and so forth.

If I were to post that I am a closet bisexual/homosexual, would I garner the same reaction?  'Oh, Shawn acts so #### fruity that I've suspected this for a long time now!'  The sad state of affairs is that I am perfectly straight and quite confident in my sexuality.  But, still, I wonder how people'd react to such fake news...

WizardSlayerPosted: 09-15-2001 16:31:11
Probably would get the same reaction after Random Crispy posted that picture that Sam! took.
80-1002268887Posted: 09-15-2001 16:42:45
I wonder what reaction I'd get if I posted this here:

KorivakPosted: 09-15-2001 16:45:52
   If you keep posting that, I'm guessing you'll eventually get banned, and since Rich seems to like those new 90 day long ones, I'd be careful...
80-1002268887Posted: 09-15-2001 16:46:56
Hey, I'm just trying to catch up to Shawn.

Plus, I have yet to post it in a serious thread. =P

Well, there goes my will to live.

KorivakPosted: 09-16-2001 00:08:16

Sexay ShawnPosted: 09-16-2001 00:39:31
My nickname is based on truth, and has universal appeal, Korivak.  So suck on that.

And Blinky, I can punch you any given time that I so choose to, and currently, I'm leaning towards punching you at the next available time when you are asleep.  So, I would suggest you stop posting that picture.

80-1002268887Posted: 09-16-2001 00:41:47
What picture?
Sexay ShawnPosted: 09-16-2001 00:45:28

BrawnfirePosted: 09-16-2001 00:48:39
This one.
RazaelPosted: 09-16-2001 00:50:39
Devil cremes?

You know that any product with the word creme in it doesn't actually have any cream. Or creme. Or whatever.

Screw devil cremes; I want some wafer bars.

BrawnfirePosted: 09-16-2001 00:52:36

This shit is GREAT.
ßetaMantisPosted: 09-16-2001 00:53:53
First point:  No, Brawnfire, I will not have sex with you!  Do you believe this guy?  I'm in the middle of a discussion and he whispers that he's evil and that he should be screwed!  What's the matter with these people!?

Second:  Shawn, I saw - and read to my amusement - that thread.  Also, your alias wasn't majorally Sexay Shawn, so any opinion on it is relatively invalid.  In fact, it hasn't been for half a year yet.

Thirdly:  Sam! is not unsexy.  And he has yet to post his sexy body on any thread denoted serious, or even semi-serious.

Fourthly:  Devil cakes look yummy.

Sexay ShawnPosted: 09-16-2001 00:57:42
Nevertheless, he is posting the same image time and time again!  That's spam, bitch.

Plus, he is not sexy.  Whether or not he is unsexy is irrelvent to my point.  Har!

ßetaMantisPosted: 09-16-2001 01:02:28
Being unsexy is simply not being sexy.  Whatever part of you is not sexy is inherently unsexy.  So, it does mean everything.
BrawnfirePosted: 09-16-2001 01:04:18
Actually, I think it's based on net ratio of sexiness to unsexiness.
RazaelPosted: 09-16-2001 01:11:43
These days, sexiness seems like such an ARBITRARY thing...
BrawnfirePosted: 09-16-2001 01:23:56
STAR CAKES, BITCHES!
Sexay ShawnPosted: 09-16-2001 01:30:16

It is when you are posting shirtless pictures of yourself in every single thread of a discussion forum, yes!

RazaelPosted: 09-16-2001 01:33:21
You people scare me.

PLEASE tell me that means the stuff's working.

ßetaMantisPosted: 09-16-2001 01:39:23
I scare everyone for a small period of time.  You'll get used to it.

Wait, you already have been exposed to me - in an online fashion.  But not actually.  And for that, you should be thankful.

Or something.

RazaelPosted: 09-16-2001 01:42:12
Believe me.

Every day, I wake up and thank whatever deities happen to exist today that I haven't met any CWALers or anyone here.

ßetaMantisPosted: 09-16-2001 01:45:50
And yet, I have met nearly enough to pluralise dozen.
MissCheetahPosted: 09-16-2001 02:52:53
I would actually like to meet some people here.  :)
KorivakPosted: 09-16-2001 08:03:33
   Roadtrip?
MissCheetahPosted: 09-16-2001 08:50:48
Possibly a roadtrip..or even a plane..if it seems safe.
Sexay ShawnPosted: 09-16-2001 09:24:50
If someone could potentially organize a (successful) RStefan01.com forum get-together, I'd attend.  I am sure that my usual cronies would, as well.  There are plenty of forumers whom I would like to meet, along with forumers I would simply like to visit with, again.

*Grins*

80-1002268887Posted: 09-16-2001 09:51:04
Sure, I'd attend. I don't care where it is. I was ready to go to the CWAL gathering in Minnesota and whatever Chuck wanted to plan in Niagara Falls before both of those things never happened.
MissCheetahPosted: 09-16-2001 10:08:19
The bad part about planning a trip anytime soon is that it will get cold soon..and snowy.  That makes travel difficult.  
80-1002268887Posted: 09-16-2001 10:16:26
Cold and snowy is fun!

Though I agree that maybe if something were to be planned, it should be planned well ahead of time, and possibly during a time when lots of people have a few days free.

MissCheetahPosted: 09-16-2001 10:28:29
That would mean summer as I doubt most people have the same spring break.  Hmmm..so far away.  Drat.
MissCheetahPosted: 09-16-2001 10:32:28
It also just occured to me that it does not snow much here..but I only have a 1 bedroom apt and can't house many people.
80-1002268887Posted: 09-16-2001 10:37:06
Exactly what is the big problem with snow anyways? I have to put up with mountains of the stuff for half of the year. I had to climb over a 20 foot high pile of snow every day just to get to work(The corner of the parking lot that I used to get to the store was also the spot where they piled the snow after clearing the lot).
Doesn't bother me none.
KorivakPosted: 09-16-2001 10:41:05
"but I only have a 1 bedroom apt and can't house many people."

   We can all sleep in MC's bedroom!

MissCheetahPosted: 09-16-2001 10:59:50
*fear* umm..many of you would all fit on the living room floor..it has wonderful soft squishy carpet and padding...
80-1002268887Posted: 09-16-2001 11:03:15
Well, from his own words we know that ßetaMantis can sleep practically anywhere. =P

Though I'm sure there's at least one hotel in the area. =P

MissCheetahPosted: 09-16-2001 11:14:32
There is a Days Inn 2 miles from my apt :)  That is most likely the cheapest decent place to stay.  I could keep a few people..but..not everyone. If people were here we would have to all go into DC..hmmm maybe to the zoo. I love the zoo.  I don't see why anyone would come here though.  I'm the only one here and I'm not centrally located.  It would be easier for me to go where more of the forumers live.
80-1002268887Posted: 09-16-2001 11:22:03
Coincidentally, I think that there's more Ontarians here than Albertonians now. =P

Last time we tried planning something, Chuck suggested Niagara Falls. I saw no problem with this, as Niagara Falls is a cool place to go.

KorivakPosted: 09-16-2001 11:27:10
   Yes, Niagra Falls is cool, and it's also close to both Ontario and New England...but pretty #### far from California.
Sexay ShawnPosted: 09-16-2001 11:37:44
Ontario easily has the most centralized population of forumers:  Sexay Shawn, Psycho Sam!, Korivak, Seraph, ßetaMantis, VéKTöR, and others that I am sure I am forgetting.  Random Crispy would probably attend, though he's not a regular poster here.  I doubt ND and Pippy06 would, but they live here as well.
80-1002268887Posted: 09-16-2001 11:40:04
Though Niagara is a bit expensive hotel-wise in the summer.
MissCheetahPosted: 09-16-2001 11:45:29
So we go in June near my b-day while rates are still cheaper.  I have never had a b-day party in my life.  My parents would not let me have friends over.  Its the 29th of June.  A bit before that should be reasonable and I'm sure we could work out something where people share rooms and the cost.
80-1002268887Posted: 09-16-2001 11:50:21
By that time I should have money. =)
Sexay ShawnPosted: 09-16-2001 11:53:33
Yay!  A birthday bash for MissCheetah!
MissCheetahPosted: 09-16-2001 11:57:53
That could be fun :)  Everyone will be out of school by mid June. We could possibly do this.  
Proman911Posted: 09-16-2001 12:01:24
I see Tom has revived my Niagra idea =).

I still think that would be a great place for most of us to meet since ALOT of us are in the North Eastern America area and South Eastern Canadian area. Others are a hop skip and a jump away and actually only about 3 hours by train.

I researched it a bit earlier in the year although I never looked into reservations of any kind. I was leaving that task up Tom =).

Also, not sure how you guys would feel about this, but if you wanna do somthing a little more south bound, I'd gladly open my house up for you guys. Its a one of those Split Houses but its nice regardless and quiet spacious. Could easily get like ::: starts counting on figures ::: Like 6 or 8 people where semi-confortably.

80-1002268887Posted: 09-16-2001 12:05:56
Well, it's less a revivl of your idea than it is the inclusion of your idea into a currently brewing one.

And preferably someone else can look up hotel reservations this time. I'm not entirely sure what I'm doing, so I'm sure there's others more well suited to the task. =P

OsirisPosted: 09-16-2001 12:28:00
I have no inclination to meet any of you jerks in person.  I'm sure you all smell bad, too.
Sexay ShawnPosted: 09-16-2001 12:29:23

OsirisPosted: 09-16-2001 12:36:12
Oh, I forgot about you.  I'd meet shawn, but only because he is so damned sexy. I find it very unlikely that I would ever want to dirty my eyes by laying them upon any of you other forumers.
kwerkeyPosted: 09-16-2001 12:38:08
I've got a better idea.  Everybody meets in southern California.  That way, not only can we all storm Blizzard and get our hands on whatever unannounced project they're working on right now (Blizzard North has to be doing something these days, in any case), but I don't have to pay money to go anywhere, either.
Sexay ShawnPosted: 09-16-2001 12:42:22
kwerkey, that's not a better idea.
80-1002268887Posted: 09-16-2001 12:46:15
Umm kwerkey, the needs of the many outweigh the needs of the few, or the one.

In this case, there's many of us who will be getting together where it's convenient so that we can all laugh at your sorry ass.

I have a friend that has a tendancy to do that on my comp if I make the mistake of leaving my ICQ up.  He likes to start the conversation by telling everyone on my list "You smell!!"

I am of the personal opinion that anyone who even remotely considers hijacking a friend's computer to type or post demeaning messages via ICQ or in a certain forum that we all know and love is obviously unfit to live.  It's even worse when the comments are along the lines of 'You smell!' or 'I am covered in poop!' and so forth.  I think that's just low, and people who do that are jerks...

Sexay ShawnPosted: 09-22-2001 21:18:59

Now if that's not offensive, what is?!

*Chuckles*

In any event, I remember once showing this forum to Kazz while I was still pressuring CWALers into posting here (I managed to drag quite a few over, actually). He made an account, and said 'There sure are a lot of unhappy people over there,' or something similar, and never ended up posting here. It's quite sad when we depress Kazz so much that he doesn't want to post here...

DarthNinnyPosted: 09-22-2001 21:55:48
Now that is a depressing thought.

Kazz, depressed = depressing.

THAT's redundant!

Oh, and whoever it was who came up with the idea to have Christopher Walken dancing around for no reason in a music video is quite possibly the worlds greatest genious.

That is all.

Goodnight.

MistressBluePosted: 09-24-2001 22:53:21
Yep i love it!!!
I was just watching it on my tv actually.
RazaelPosted: 09-24-2001 22:54:12
What channel and when?
MistressBluePosted: 09-24-2001 23:00:29
I encoded it into vcd and put it on a disk to play on my dvd player.
And even if I did watch it on television it wouldnt help you seeing I live in Australia.
RazaelPosted: 09-24-2001 23:09:33
Aww.
80-1002268887Posted: 09-25-2001 09:04:59
Anyhoo, it's uploaded here.
Sexay ShawnPosted: 09-25-2001 11:42:04
It's a Fatboy Slim video, Raz. I've been telling friends about it for months and now Sam! has finally downloaded it, hehe. You'd think it would have happened sooner considering we're all a bunch of crazy Christopher Walken fanatics...
RazaelPosted: 09-25-2001 15:29:28
Thankee. I'll snag it while I'm off at my CS class.
RStefan01Posted: 09-25-2001 19:23:42

I may or may not have taken a picture of a picture we ran at work with my digital camera, and there's a possibility that it's the above picture.

That thing is insane.

Hod, I'm freezing... And I'm in the warmest room in the house...

In an attempt to fight off my alergies caused by Korivak's dogs, and the fact that it was already fighting whatever's on my tongue, My immune system seems to have let a cold slip by.

Came on rather fast as well. As Shawn knows, I wasn't feeling terribly bad yesterday.

THis is irritating, cause I don't think I've gotten a cold in the last several years.  Sure I've had the flu twice, and my tongue thing, but that's all I've had.

Guess this means I'm mortal after all... heh...

BrawnfirePosted: 09-27-2001 20:00:41

*BAM!*

Yes.  Mortal.

OsirisPosted: 09-27-2001 20:14:39
You look through your customer's photos?

Uh oh

RStefan01Posted: 09-27-2001 20:18:20
Actually, we do. We make sure that they turn out, and we don't charge for ones that don't. We also have to make sure there isn't any child pornography in there (adult pornography is just fine though, and we'd be more than happy to develop it!).
DebtAngelPosted: 09-27-2001 21:23:34
What, you think it was the magic machine's fault that your photos keep turning out green, Osiris? :biggrin:

Seriously though, if your pictures are a little green, or have a random snowstorm on them, chances are the guy running the print machine screwed up. I can say this with a little authority, seeing as I did work in Photolab for a while.

There is a surprising amount that is actually under the photo finisher's control. The thing is, the photo finishers are usually so busy, they usually just hit NEXT, NEXT, NEXT without looking hard at the photos. I usually took about 3/4 of a second per print. Then the person that takes them off the rack flips through the entire set in about three seconds.

So yes, we do look at the prints for "quality assurance". and to see neat stuff. Like a fully functional Batmobile. That set of prints was nifty. :)

Can we forego the moving to Nepean (know known as Ottawa, silly) part?
80-1002268887Posted: 10-20-2001 14:08:27
No, you must move to Ottawa. Right now.

Unfortunately, there's no room in my house this time, so you'll probably have to move in with Shawn, or live underneath Korivak's living room(Though it's still full of my junk).
KorivakPosted: 10-20-2001 14:12:36
   No, if you want to be my friend, you have to be my friend in real life.  I have exactly one internet friend I really like, and keep telling her to come visit me IRL because the internet is just for fooling around, whereas real life is...well, real.
   In other news, even though the whole city is called Ottawa, the part of the city that I live in and spend almost all my time in is called Nepean.  If you want to go into semantics, I could just describe the area that I live in as "the portion of the New City Of Ottawa™ that is located between Merivale and the 416, south of Baseline, north of West Hunt Club, and including Bells Corners".  Or, I could replace that 28 word long concept with the single word "Nepean".  And so, in conclusion, eat shit and die.
Sexay ShawnPosted: 10-20-2001 14:16:02
Either Korivak is irritable today, or his signature really does speak the truth. I can't tell. My mind, it boggles!

Sure, just move to Nepean and spend lots of time with me, and I might like you and add you to the Short List™.

On a more serious, and slightly sadder note, had my sister survived more than a few days(She had a heart condition, and was born before heart transplants were possible), today would have been her 18th birthday.

Really makes me wonder what my life would have been like had she survived to today. For starters, we wouldn't live here, since the house would be too small. That's just one of the things that I can think of...
KorivakPosted: 10-20-2001 23:02:00
   For the record:
   1 - I currently have no girlfriend.
   2 - I have a friend, who may or may not also happen to be female, who is named Andie (or ND online).
   3 - There is not and never was a "Korivaksgirl"...you're thinking of Packheadsgirl.
   4 - I am not in a relationship with Darth Ninny or Dark Nexus.
   5 - I like boobies.
Sexay ShawnPosted: 10-20-2001 23:13:34

I don't know!

You know this already, but...

My oldest brother, Mark, is adopted. The reason he is adopted is due to the fact that my mother's first attempt to have a child with my father failed. The fetus was destroyed by natural antibodies while still inside of her womb. She was obviously traumatised enough to adopt, and eventually tried again to have child, resulting in Tom. Then, me. Still, it's odd knowing that I would have had a maternal oldest brother. If he was born successfully, my parents wouldn't have adopted Mark, either.
KorivakPosted: 10-20-2001 23:16:09
   I also have an older brother, Daniel, who would be one year older than me if he had lived.  But then, I never would have been born...
BevyPosted: 10-20-2001 23:31:43
Korivak> Yeah, packhead'sgirl is who I'm thinking of.

Weren't you and ND going together for awhile though or something? You were, I'm sure of it, because you and ND both got mad at SM because you guys thought he was trying to come between you and get with ND.

Saturday Night Fever is on.

Well you can tell by the way I use my walk, I'm a woman's man, not ime to talk...
KorivakPosted: 10-20-2001 23:35:48
   Wow!  You know even more about my personal life than I do!  How could I have forgotten all that stuff?  I must be having a senior moment.  Thank you for reminding me about what my relationship with Andie and Shawn was really like!

ßetaMantisPosted: 10-20-2001 23:51:55
*slaps Korivak*

DarthNinny's abbreviation is DNY.  Get it right.  The reasoning is DN was already taken (by Dark Nexus, of course).
BevyPosted: 10-20-2001 23:54:15
Kinda like stocks.

Actually, I've always known DN as DN, and I will continue to abbreviate it like that because I don't know the other DN.
80-1002268887Posted: 10-20-2001 23:55:07
Well, sorry Bevy, DNY has been DNY forever, and that's his abbrev.
BevyPosted: 10-20-2001 23:59:38
It doesn't matter.

I've said DN here (and I'm sure I've seen quite a few others refer to him as DN) and people knew what I meant, and DNY being (apparently) the "way it is" doesn't mean a thing to me.
kwerkeyPosted: 10-21-2001 00:01:22
So you'll type "MetallicA" because a picture makes it look like the A is capitalized (but in text, it's not), while when DNY abbreviates it that way, you refuse?

I fail to see your logic.
80-1002268887Posted: 10-21-2001 00:02:00
OK, but every time you say it, there will be people around who know his as DNY and will point this out, so you might as well just say it, since nobody's going to stop.
BevyPosted: 10-21-2001 00:07:59
I've always said DN and many other people here have since he got here and the whole DNY issue never came up. Besides, if it gets you bastards this riled up I may as well do it for fun.

kwerkey> Are you asking if there's a method to my madness?
80-1002268887Posted: 10-21-2001 00:11:40
Oh, I'm not riled up, I'm just doing this out of principle.
ßetaMantisPosted: 10-21-2001 00:12:19
I believe my parents were married at the time in question.  But then again, I don't get riled up . . . often.

When you say DN, Bevy, I think of Dark Nexus.  So, if you ever say DN and it seems (CWALers, anyway) agree with you, it might be because they think you're thinking of someone else entirely.  *smirks*

Your blatant disregard for convention - while not wrong - will be incredibly inconvenient and allow for a multitude of misinterpretations.
BevyPosted: 10-21-2001 00:18:04
Principle?

I find that somehow... amusing.

Of course, I wouldn't care if anybody misinterprets anythign I say having to do with Darth Ninny, so it's ok.
80-1002268887Posted: 10-21-2001 00:20:18
Oh, I do alot of things on principle. It's one of my major motivations for doing anything, actually.
BevyPosted: 10-21-2001 00:23:04
If you told me that you wear a plaid t-shirt over a random base color t-shirt everyday out of principle, I would laugh.

I'm not saying you would say something like that, or that you necessarily do, but it's the first thing that came to my mind.
80-1002268887Posted: 10-21-2001 00:31:09
No, I wear that because that's how I like to dress.

I wear one black sock and one white sock on principle though. People kept noticing one day when I didn't have any matching socks to wear, so I can't really stop wearing them, can I?
BevyPosted: 10-21-2001 00:33:14
My opinion right now is that you're acting too seriously.
80-1002268887Posted: 10-21-2001 00:41:42
And my opinion is that I don't really care enough, therefore I absolutely have to do it.
kwerkeyPosted: 10-21-2001 01:14:18
Bevy's right.  We shouldn't have to use the right words to describe the right phalluses.  It's hard enough to remember the water that we have to now, so we can be expected to Johnson some grunts now and then.  Besides, it's not really that book to checker about.  Some people just get way too beanbag out of underwear.

*Tries to reply, but is laughing too hard*

Actually, I've always known DN as DN, and I will continue to abbreviate it like that because I don't know the other DN.

DarthNinny refers to himself as 'DNY' -- even in this forum. You can continue dubbing him 'DN' if you so wish, but most of the forumers here will assume you're referring to Dark Nexus. You'll either have to use endless disclaimers (which is really only inconveniencing yourself), or live with the fact that you'll be shunned like Nighteye, who also enjoys giving words his own definitions. And who wants to be like Eye of the Night?

*Grin*

   I know that DN and DNY are two different people...I just wanted to make it as clear as possible that I'm not in a relationship with anyone that has initials even slightly resembeling ND or DN.  Plus, the message I was replying to made specific reference to "NarthDinny"...

You know what sucks even worse than knowing they're out having fun? When you finally get around them for awhile and they're reminiscing upon the times when everyone but you was there. "Oh remember this?" and "Oh remember that?" and then a bunch of laughing.

I'm not talking about anything specific.

Sexay ShawnPosted: 10-24-2001 00:01:57
Of course, I am not an outcast, per se.

I've simply been incredibly fucking busy.

I don't work tomorrow, though. For the first time in a week and a half of nothing but school/work, and no friends at all.

At least I love my job, though. That makes it worthwhile...
BevyPosted: 10-24-2001 00:04:30
Outcast simply meant the one in the group that's not so much in the group at a moment or something.

I was going to post this in the "Polluting the Gene poll" thread but that thread is progressing so nicely it would be a shame to post any off topic thoughts in that thread.

I wanted to ask ... where is the real Beta? He's acting unusually agreeable tonight. Don't get me wrong, I like this side of him but I have to admit I am looking for Pods right now!
80-1002268887Posted: 10-30-2001 18:07:30
OK, I've rechecked my budget for the month, and a hedgehog is a much better choice at the moment. If I were to get a ferret, I'd have to take the Trigun boxed dvd set and a router, and those would both be very useful. Plus I have more miscelaneous spending cash this way, and I wanted a hedgehog to begin with.

Maybe some time in the future I'll get that ferret...

Proman911Posted: 11-13-2001 00:29:33
Rocky goated Austin to comming out to finish "unfinished buissness from Wrestle Mania".

After Austin came out, Rock and Austin goated each other for a while each swipping the mic while the other was speaking.

Finally Austin started singing in the mic and then Rock did the same. The ended with a duet and then Rocky choak slammed Austin.

Kurt jumped in to defned Austin and then Y2J did the same to help Rocky.

Y2J had the perfect oppurnity to slam Rocky again and didn't. So that went to say Kurt and Austin were on the same page as was Y2J and Rocky.

The swipping mic thing and signing thing went on for about 12 minutes and it was distrubing.

Proman,

It was the Rock Bottom, not the Choke Slam. The Rock is not tall enough to do a decent Choke Slam.

And I got disturbed right when Stone Cold started to sing. Wrestlers shouldn't sing; especially those with Stone Colds oh-so-lovely singing voice.

And NightEye,

If you were only assuming you were assuming, then kwerkeys assumption that you are indeed assuming is a perfectly valid, and ultimately correct assumption.

I mean, you certainly are making an ass of you and not me.

Or at least that's my assumption.

Beta, the trick is in the word "only". If you only assume something, then that something isn't true. DebtAngel did get that part right.

However, if you only assume you're assuming, you're both assuming and not assuming, in a way kind of similar to someone saying "I am now lying". It can neither be true or false, and as such, the only answer is that it's not determinable.

Eye of the Night, it doesn't matter.

"If I only assume" is saying "on the condition I assume and nothing else".  You are admitting, as a condition for this situation, that you are assuming.  Whether that's the only thing you are doing are not is irrelevent to the question "Are you assuming?".\n\n
Eye of the NightPosted: 11-15-2001 15:43:45

Even so I'm pretty sure that it's but a simplification. I think the earth rotates around the center of the solar system (as in center of the mass, I'm sure there's a term for it), and that the sun also rotates around this point, at a very low orbit. Also, the point itself moves (slightly) as the planets and the sun move around it.

Where DO you get your ideas from, exactly?  If I assume something, I am believing, on the basis of no real evidence, that something is true.  Not that it is or isn't, that I believe it is.\n\n
Eye of the NightPosted: 11-15-2001 18:15:16
If you assume something, you believe it to be true regardless of whether it's true or not.
If you only assume something, you believe it to be true while it isn't.

It's that simple :)
DebtAngelPosted: 11-15-2001 20:21:20
Wrong, Nighteye, but thanks for playing.

If I only assume something, it just means I haven't done the research.

For instance, I only assume that you're a guy. I haven't seen you, but based on how you post, it's the assumption I've come to. And you know what; I have a 49% chance of being right.

Just because I assume something is true does not, by default, make it false.

Actually, I was thinking more along the lines of "51% of the population of the planet is female".

But now that you've pointed out the flaw in my logic, I'll just have to assume that what I just only assumed two posts ago is more likely to be true than I originally assumed.

In other news, here are my predictions as to the results of the Survivor Series:

  • Dudley Boys d. Hardy Boys, and win Termination Immunity as Undisputed Tag Team Champions.

  • The Intercontinental/US belt unification match could go either way, but I'll say Test d. Edge because Test has been getting a lot of TV time.

  • WWF wins the 10 man elimination match, thanks to a defection by somebody other than Austin. Austin, as WWF Champion, gets to stay.



Now, with this plan, I'm not sure how Booker T, RVD, and/or Angle are going to get written back in.

Oh, and did anybody else notice how extremely pissed off Mick Foley was on RAW, and how pissed off Paul Heyman was on Smack Down! It's like these guys weren't faking.

I especially identify with what Paul Heyman said, because he basically told the truth the entire time. It was, like, scary. It was like he was actually trying, for real, to dismantle the WWF and Vince McMahon. I wonder if there's a transcript floating around somewhere.

Edit: Not a transcript, but it'll do for now:

If you assume something, you believe it to be true regardless of whether it's true or not.
If you only assume something, you believe it to be true while it isn't.


Even if I decide to believe you - which I am not, for the record - how is this relevent to your question "Am I assuming?"?
OsirisPosted: 11-16-2001 12:53:33
I understand where EOTN is going with this, but I still don't agree.  Dude, you're thinking about this way too deeply.  Language is fuzzy, you're trying to apply boolean logic to words, and the outcome isn't always a clearcut answer.

If I say I only like tacos from Taco Cabana, that doesn't mean I don't also enjoy Chicken Parmesan at Casa D'Angelos.

: If you assume something, you believe it to be true regardless of whether it's true or not.

If x then y

: If you only assume something, you believe it to be true while it isn't.

If and only if x then not (y)

You aren't explaining the jump from step 1 to step 2, nor can I think of any way in which I would agree with it.


ßetaMantisPosted: 11-16-2001 13:33:09
"If I only assume" means "If I assume and do nothing else" to me.  I don't know about anyone else.

I don't agree because it doesn't make sense, not as he's described it.  His idea of tacking on an only means whatever you're assuming is false . . . boggles my mind.
DebtAngelPosted: 11-16-2001 14:06:36
Actually I like his logic.

By his logic, if I only assume that buying a small country is beyond my means, then that must mean that buying a small country is no harder than a trip to talk with my investment planner.

Or if I only assume that one does not get cars for free, then then that must mean that somebody will hand me the keys to their car tomorrow over tea.

It's flawless, I tell you. Flawless. :)
ßetaMantisPosted: 11-16-2001 14:19:15
And that, is one more reason why it's preposterous.  Proof by counterexample.  If I only assume I am mortal, I am a god.

*boggles*

How does that make sense from any standpoint?  Assumptions have no correlation to fact and tend to be far from it.  But the fact EotN says the qualifiers on the verb assume CAN denote the factuality of the assumption is downright ri-goddamned-diculous.

There are other, more net-friendly ways to do that kind of thing, however.

For example, I like bolding words for emphasis. I don't italicise, generally, because italicized sans-serif fonts don't look very good.
i.e. And that is one more reason why it's preposterous.

I also like adding in words for no good reason.

DA, ß, it's a construction based on the knowledge of the one using it. So when something is true, you can't only assume it to be. It's basically a kind of supposition. Reality does not bend to the construction, the construction bends to reality.

OsirisPosted: 11-17-2001 09:45:19
I think I would agree with you if you said this:

If it is ONLY assumed (universally) that some condition is true, then the condition is false, since the only truth is in the assumption and there is no ancilliary evidience or really anything that would make the condition true.

If *I* only assume that some condition is true, the condition can be either true or false, as there may be information that I do not posess.

Either way, I'm kicking you in the bals.

I wanna get with ya
I won't cus or hit ya
But I gotta be straight when I say I wanna --
Til the break of dawn
Baby Got it goin on
Alot of pimps won't like this song
Cuz them punks lie to hit it and quit it
But I'd rather stay and play
Cuz I'm long and I'm strong
And I'm down to get the friction on So ladies

Then turn around
Stick it out
Even white boys got to shout

When it comes to females
Cosmo ain't got nothin to do with my selection

Only if she's 5'3"

So your girlfriend throws a Honda
Playin workout tapes by Fonda
But Fonda ain't got a motor in the back of her Honda

My anaconda don't want none unless you've got buns hun

You can do side bends or sit-ups, but please don't lose that butt

Damn! I may be allergic to peanuts! My throat has been kinda swelling up since Thursday, and the only thing I can think of that I did to cause that was packed some crunchy peanut butter sandwhiches for lunch.

I'd better not be allergic to peanuts... Reese peanut butter cups are quite possibly my favourite form of sweets, and I don't think I could stand to lose them!
ßetaMantisPosted: 11-18-2001 13:09:56
Maybe you should sit or lie to lose them then.  Speaking of peanut allergies, my sister's elementary school disallows any products that may have nuts in them due to some undisclosed number of students having allergies to said things.

That's like outlawing milk or pollen on school property.  Enforce those . . .
kwerkeyPosted: 11-18-2001 13:30:40
There we go.
Instead of helping the kids who are allergic, they punish those who aren't.  I see the logic in that.

Wait, that was a horrible lie.
OsirisPosted: 11-18-2001 14:23:07
Stop being stupid.  Peanut allergies can be serious and life threatening, where even trace amounts of peanut protien can make a child sick or even die.

If you're lactose intolerant, you don't throw up by walking past a container of milk, whereas a child with a peanut allergy may walk past a open container of peanuts and become seriously ill.  Although most symptoms are just rashes and asthma-like conditions, the rarest of cases are deadly.  Unless your school nurse has stocks of epinephrine, banning it is the only logical way to prevent illnesses.

An adult, on the other hand, usually already knows about his or her allergic reaction to peanuts and can make conscious efforts to avoid them.  Kids have less reserve and are more senstive to sicknesses, or they might not even be aware of their condition.

\n\n
80-1002268887Posted: 11-18-2001 14:43:59
Well this is just strange, since I haven't been allergic to peanuts before now. Actually, while I was staying at Shawns, I had a peanut butter sandwhich every day, and my throat was kinda tight then as well, and seemed to go away the week we didn't have any peanut butter around the house...

This is almost as annoying as my inconsistent lactose intolerancy... I randomly can't eat cheese and whatnot, but alot of the time it doesn't bother me at all...

At least neither seem life threatening, but I'm going to schedule a doctors appointment to get me checked out for all allergies, since I believe I may be alergic to metals as well. (My watch hurts my wrist no matter how loose or tight it is, but only where the metal bottom of the watch, and the clip on the watch strap touch my skin, and my glasses suddenly started bothering my head...)

Hoddammit, I missed some of Reboot cause I was busy doing stuff. No problem, I set my vcr to tape it, right? Wrong. I set it to tape from 4 until 6, so what does it do? Starts taping at 6! Looking into the configuration, it's still set to tape from 4pm until 6pm on November 18th, 2001. THe time configuration now says November 18th 2001, 6:03pm.

No problem, Random Crispy was taping it, right? Wrong! He left the house, and when he got back, someone had stopped the vcr, so his cuts out half an hour before the end.

It had better come out on dvd or something...

ßetaMantisPosted: 11-19-2001 06:39:39
I am not being stupid, Osiris.  I fail to understand why an entire school is unable to have nuts because an undisclosed number of them (I am guessing a dozen - for no apparent reason) are allergic to them.  A child with an allergy to nuts should avoid nuts.  Just like one with an allergy to eggs or caffiene should avoid those things.  Just like one with asthma should avoid triggers - 'cause any one of them can be life-threatening.
MissCheetahPosted: 11-19-2001 09:38:13
ßeta, I think the reason they banned peanuts entirely in some schools is because it is virtually impossible for the children with the allergies to avoid all traces of peanuts.  If a child has a peanutbutter and jelly sandwich, gets even a trace of it on his/her hands, then touches a doorknob, the child with allergies can have a reaction from touching the doorknob.  I do not even mean traces you can see.  The solution is for those children to wear gloves and avoid all contact.  School systems and parents don't want to do that to the children.  Someone might suggest that all children wash thier hands after lunch to prevent that..but getting small children to go do that is very difficult.. a teacher would have to take them every day and supervise.  Sad but true. I was a teacher for 3 years. I agree that its silly to ban all peanut products in an elementary school but otherwise its impossible to avoid contamination of other surfaces like tables, chairs, and doors.  School systems don't want to end up in court if an accident happens.  As the children get older they are expected to be more careful and know to avoid danger areas and items.
ßetaMantisPosted: 11-19-2001 09:57:05
Sorry, I guess I misstated what I meant.  I understand why peanuts are banned (even if I don't like it), but why not other allergens then?

In short, are you trying to tell me that peanut allergies are the worst (as in most life-threatening/dangerous) and most easily triggered?

\n\n
MissCheetahPosted: 11-19-2001 11:54:19
I don't think its that they are the worst... bee stings can kill easily too. Its that apparently very very tiny traces of peanut dust or oil can cause the reaction. The only way to prevent a reaction is to remove the substance.  Most allergens like pollen and pet dander don't kill people. (Yes, the asthma attack they trigger can kill, but asthma can be controlled with medication and I think it takes longer to die from asthma.. you have time to get to the hospital)  Allergies to milk or most foods are not a problem unless the person ingests it.  I cases where simple touch or inhallation can be fatal they have to take more drastic measures.  If it were an allergy to another substance that could also be triggered by touch or inhallation they would ban that substance also. I really wish I could think of a good example but I can't.  Migraine headaches are not condusive to thinking clearly.
ßetaMantisPosted: 11-19-2001 12:00:29
So, it is the worst in your opinion, since you can think of nothing worse - right?

And ick, a migraine?  I am not exactly sure what is the difference between a migraine and a headache is, minus severity.
MissCheetahPosted: 11-19-2001 12:09:20
No I don't think it is the worst. I would need a list of all known allergens and thier effects before I made that decision. In fact, I do know that there are quite a few other allergens that can cause the same, nearly instantly fatal, reaction in a small group of people.  Bee stings are an example. I just can't think of an example of another allergen that can cause that reaction by simply touching or inhaling it.  I'm sure there are examples and someone else may even think of one.
ßetaMantisPosted: 11-19-2001 12:30:46
*grins*  Good.  I wouldn't mind hearing of one worse and more easily triggered - if you or anyone else thinks of one.

El cazadorPosted: 11-19-2001 19:39:44
I've always thought that a headache was when your whole head hurt, while a migraine was when half your head hurt (one side or the other) and is much more recurrent.  But then, how do you call a headache that hurts only a quarter of your head?  Like in the back of one of your eyes, but doesn't extend all the way through.   A "migr"?

(And before any of you nitpickers correct me, I'm almost sure that migraine description is wrong.  Almost.)  :)
rRaminrodtPosted: 11-19-2001 19:51:52
You guessed right.  :)

A migraine is a particular kind of very bad headache.  You'd probably have to look it up on a medical site to get a read good of description of it though.



On a completly different note.....

Eye of the NightPosted: 11-19-2001 19:55:19
Any portion of your head aching is a headache. A migraine is simply a chronic headache. ;)
ßetaMantisPosted: 11-19-2001 20:41:45
I was under the impression also that a migraine was somewhat localised.  A headache tends to be total.

Now that I think on it, my (severe) headaches (typically begotten from too little sleep or not wearing glasses enough) tend to only affect a part of a side of my brain.  Typically my right.
El cazadorPosted: 11-19-2001 20:49:00
When I've been reading, drawing or looking at the monitor for too long, or too close, a "quarter of a headache" can result from that.  I get half headaches sometimes.  And if I don't eat my lunch, I end up with a light headache at night.  As soon as I eat, it dissapears after a while.
ßetaMantisPosted: 11-19-2001 20:58:56
When I get hungry (which is basically all the time minus when I am unconscious or just finished eating), my stomach merely hurts in a specific, empty-feeling way.  Eventually, it feels like my stomach is trying to digest itself - and it only keeps getting worse until I eat or until a while passes, then it disappears.

And reemerges.  Worse than before.

As for headaches, I consider anything less than disorienting not even a headache.  My usual headaches are usually so painful, I can't raise my head.  Light causes a little more of negative stimuli than usual, I can feel this accentuated throbbing usually in the front left part of my head.

Given an hour and a half, I can weather them to the point their tolerable.  I refuse to take painkillers so long as I can stand.

I almost always have some slight headache.  Probably from a combination of monitor radiation and thinking too much.

*shrugs*

I've had a pretty prolific history with headaches.

Look kwerkey, earlier this week it was snowing, now it's about +10(That's celcius for those of you who use that odd system) and I can walk around outside in my t-shirt.

The thing I really hate about weather changes like this is that they cause me to get sick very easily...
MistressBluePosted: 11-24-2001 17:22:52
Its 10.22am and its about 25 celcius here. This means that by around 3pm it will more than likely be around 35.
A normal summers day :-)
Eye of the NightPosted: 11-24-2001 17:39:57
Here it's about 278K. Kind of chilly...and celsius is NOT an odd system. Fahrenheit is.
Celsius is based on the state transitions of H2O, the most common molecule on the earth surface, divided in 100 degrees. That's much more logical than fahrenheit which has something to do with human body temperature, if I remember correctly, which isn't even really a constant.
Of course, Kelvin would probably be the best scale to use, for it's as logical as celsius, with a logical starting point as well.
80-1002268887Posted: 11-24-2001 17:40:52
Yeah, sounds like summer to me.

Ottawa varies between +30c and -50c based on the time of year. And in the fall and early spring, it hovers between + and - 10-15, and changes alot. I hate that. Catches my immune system totally off guard. Usually that's the only time of year that I get sick, though this year I've been getting sick more than usual. Seem to have develloped a few odd allergies within the past year too...

It's rather odd, actually.

Sam:  That's celcius for those of you who use that odd system.

EotN:  Celsius is NOT an odd system.

I mean, syntactically that works.  Why do you think he would refer to it in Centigrade first and then say it's an odd system?  Isn't that a little . . . well, stupid?

*shrugs*

A lot of people argue the Kelvin unit is silly.  Funny thing is, my father keeps trying to tell me that you can say 273°K.

Celsius and Fahrenheit are scales (of which the units are degrees of said scale) and Kelvin is a unit.
kwerkeyPosted: 11-24-2001 22:10:12
That's celcius for those of you who use that odd system

He was talking in celcius.  He was clarifying that he was not using farenheit.  How much clearer can you get?  Everybody got it besides you, so guess where the problem is.  Moron.
kwerkeyPosted: 11-24-2001 22:14:35
Kelvins are silly because people just don't deal with temperatures any lower than 250K on any kind of regular basis.

Kelvins make sense because not only are you saying zero energy is zero units, you can do things like percent change in temperature.

So, all in all, centigrade wins because it's much easier than explaining what a Kelvin is every single time to all the morons who don't know.

Since this is not worth a thread on it's own, I'll ask this question here:

Can you see the blue square surrounding my signature?  I can't at home, but I do at work, in a much darker hue.  I didn't know what blue Rich was using, so I took a screenshot of the forum, and used the color picker in photoshop.  In theory, it should look the same on most monitors, and make itself "invisible" to the eye.
ßetaMantisPosted: 11-24-2001 23:14:35

Well, Rich chose an odd colour for his forum. I know that when I tried matching it, it was very difficult to get it matched in both IE and Netscape...
RStefan01Posted: 11-25-2001 02:21:26
The color is #000066

Browsers with fucked image support won't show it right. IE seems to fall into that category.
kwerkeyPosted: 11-25-2001 02:49:36
If you saved your image as 256 color, the 000066 may change to something else.  You could try examining the palette, finding out which color is the background, and changing it back to a pure #000066.

Now, because I have an English keyboard, VéKTöR's alias (being VéKTöR) is harder to type than my own - since none of ß, é and ö show up on my keyboard and I must enter it by ASCII or Unicode.

In other random news since this is a no topic thread, I'm sick at home with a virus type thing.

It has been raining a lot down here, too. We go from a 1.5 month drought to a lot of rain. But it's all good I guess. I just hope we don't get any tornado warnings/watches.
ßetaMantisPosted: 11-27-2001 08:56:30
I was all but told to go home two weeks ago today.  I spent two and a half days bedridden from some flu-like bug.  My sister had it the week prior we [my family and I] think and my mother's been under the weather lately.
RaiderPosted: 11-27-2001 08:59:41
Yeah...my family has what I have too. It's spreading around this area.
ßetaMantisPosted: 11-27-2001 09:13:10
Yeah, that's an apparently uncommon thing I do.  If I can stand, I am off to work.  I just merely WILL myself to do it.  It's due to my father, having instilled that silly sense of duty and responsibility in me.  I will do work until I am all but told to go home by superiors.  If advised to, I will usually reassess my productivity level, and if it's "significantly" lowered, I will go home on their advice.

The last time I was bedridden I think was over two years ago.

*shrugs*

I hope you get better and am certain you will with time.

If it ends up debilitating you, I've always found the best thing to do is to use a washcloth somewhat drenched in tepid to slightly warm or ice cold on your forehead, bury yourself in as many blankets, sheets and comforters you can find and sleep it off.  I avoid medication if possible.  Besides, if I can't tolerate it, how does taking a drug to stem symptoms and keep going make it better?
VéKTöRPosted: 11-27-2001 10:05:33
Because drugs are good.

   I was just watching one of the Deftones concert videos on my computer and laughing.  In this video, Chino (the lead singer) is standing on the crowd control fence between the mosh pit and the stage singing, and:
   Some jackass grabs the mic and starts yelling into it, and gets punched in the face by one of the crowd control people...
   Some other jackass is tearing at Chino's clothing, trying to make a souvenir out of Chino's shirt.  He gets punched in the top of the head by Chino, who seems to enjoy wearing a shirt...
   Ten seconds later, the same guy or someone else with the same idea is back at it, and has a square foot of shirt torn almost lose and is pulling on it, trying to rip it away from the seam.  Chino, without missing a word, screams "What the fuck!" into the mic and throws another punch.  The song then ends and Chino climbs back up onto the stage, torn shirt fluttering slightly.
   You would think the audience was collectively thinking "Look, a rock star!  Kill it!  Kill it!" or something...

KorivakPosted: 11-29-2001 17:36:05
   So I talked to Andie a week ago and asked her if we could get together and talk sometime, and she said she just might have a tiny bit of free time on Thursday, but seeing me any other time all week was flat out impossible.  This coming from the girl who can be at my house ten minutes after stepping out her door if she walks slowly...
   Well, I wanted to talk, but I had no idea what I was going to say, but it's just as well because two days ago she sent me a single sentence email detailing all the wonderful, productive things she could do with that one little hour of evil nasty dirty free time instead of talking to me about (shudder) emotions and other things that don't fall within her very focussed, very busy, very successful life.  And yet, here I am, a love sick moron, sitting next to the phone and checking my email every few minutes, even though I'm more likely to spend the evening discussing advanced particle physics with the Lord Jesus than see the girl who so recently hated to go a day without seeing me at least once.
   But more than anything else, I just want to know why after all the pain and misery I've suffered through trying to have a simple, satisfying relationship with a girl that turned out to be cold, emtionless, passionless and frigid, I just can't stop being in love with her.  I think I hate her, but I still can't help loving her...  How fucked up is that?
BrawnfirePosted: 11-29-2001 17:42:50
Very fucked up.

Very normal.

Augh!
Sexay ShawnPosted: 11-29-2001 18:05:25
But more than anything else, I just want to know why after all the pain and misery I've suffered through trying to have a simple, satisfying relationship with a girl that turned out to be cold, emtionless, passionless and frigid, I just can't stop being in love with her.

What's more alarming is the parallel structure of our lives at the moment.  At least, our romantic ones.  Of course, you know of this already.

*sighs, and shrugs*  Essentially, it comes down to the fact that she isn't the one for you.  Obviously, there are plenty of ladies in this universe who are more open to the prospect of having a symmetrical relationship (regarding what you want in one).  Perhaps she'll change, or perhaps she'll find someone like her, whom she can equate with more.

Not that you asked for my opinion.  *grins*

But, yeah.  Give up on her.  Holding onto frustration (and to a certain extent, bitterness) will only create complications when you do speak with her, because that hostility will manifest itself each and every time, causing her to resent you.  *sighs again*  Trust me, I know.

By taking a break from her, your feelings will begin to subside, eventually.  Eventually, you might begin to take note of the fact that she was cold towards you, while still bearing in mind that perhaps she wouldn't behave this way in all relationships.  If you're really lucky, you might even be able to speak to each other down the line...

\n\n
KorivakPosted: 11-29-2001 18:10:33
   The problem is that no matter how much I hate the person she has become, I just can't get over the person that she was.  I love the person she once was with all my heart, but that person is dead now, and I just haven't fully accepted it yet.
BrawnfirePosted: 11-29-2001 18:14:27
And I see myself, standing there, holding the bloody knife.  The her that was is dead, on the ground, a tear in her eye.  The monster she has become is staring straight at me, then turning her head.  There is nothing left.

Just a bit of inspiring story-age.
Sexay ShawnPosted: 11-29-2001 18:15:04
*nods*  I know how you feel, exactly.  Without going into any specific detail regarding my life here, you ought to know what I am referring to.  There is significant contrast when I consider this person in the summer, and currently.  I have the ICQ logs to prove it, in fact.

Try not to hate her.  I simply think that she has some inner deamons she is potentially avoiding tackling; though, that's the idealistic approach to the situation.  The less flattering one explains that she simply wasn't happy with you, and will feel more close and able to open up to someone else, down the line.  Frankly, I know you will.  And at that point in time I am convinced that you will reflect upon your relatoinship with Andie and see that she simply wasn't the person you were looking for; the person who can meet your expectations and wants inside of a relationship.
KorivakPosted: 11-29-2001 18:18:49
"she simply wasn't the person you were looking for; the person who can meet your expectations and wants inside of a relationship."
   No fucking shit.  If only I weren't so goddamn patient, I would have admitted that long ago and not invested so much in trying to make the whole fucked up mess work...
Eye of the NightPosted: 11-29-2001 18:36:47
I think I hate her, but I still can't help loving her...  How fucked up is that?

No more than being in love with a girl for 5 years without ever getting even a hint of warmth returned.

You could try simply telling flat out how you feel, not withholding anything, and see how it goes from there. I'd expect it'd either improve a lot or go with a bang, depending on how she feels about the whole thing. But either way the matter should be drawn to a close that way...

As for both loving and hating her, while I have no experience with it myself, people say there's a thin line separating hate and love...
Sexay ShawnPosted: 11-29-2001 18:39:23
No fucking shit.  If only I weren't so goddamn patient, I would have admitted that long ago and not invested so much in trying to make the whole fucked up mess work...

*sighs sadly*  I know.  And all I can offer are my irritatingly calm words to reassure you.  Experiences such as these are what help us define more accurately what we want in any given relationship.

What we expect.

What Andie wanted was completely different than what you wanted, more or less.  Hell, even I wouldn't have been able to detect this until recently, myself.  I am still learning.

Hopefully, you won't always view it all as "fucked up".  It was a guiding post, an object lesson, an experience.

In situations such as these, the individual experiencing the combination of emotions is usually feeling resentment towards the person's current behaviour while fondly recalling previous times in which they felt more content.  Unfortunately, people are perpetually changing, and nothing is static.  Clinging to an ideal while only increase the heartbreak for the hypothetical individual I am describing.
KorivakPosted: 11-29-2001 18:47:51
   This is the same goddamn mistake my whole family has always made, to mistake an emotionless person for a rational and calm one...

"In situations such as these, the individual experiencing the combination of emotions is usually feeling resentment towards the person's current behaviour while fondly recalling previous times in which they felt more content."
   She used to spend several hours every day with me, and now it's been a month and I have spoken to her for a grand total of about ten fucking minutes on the phone, and never in person.  I think that's a bit more than just remembering some slightly fuzzy happy memory with longing...
Sexay ShawnPosted: 11-29-2001 18:58:04
This is the same goddamn mistake my whole family has always made, to mistake an emotionless person for a rational and calm one...

She is not emotionless.  She exists within a protective shell, carefully hiding her emotions.  At least, this is how I perceive her behaviour and the behaviour of others.

Again, she might overcome this wall she has constructed, or she will choose to live with it forever, after finding someone whom will have no qualms with her distant nature.  Perhaps she will become less distant with someone, based on her experiences with you and others.  And so on, and so forth...

She used to spend several hours every day with me, and now it's been a month and I have spoken to her for a grand total of about ten fucking minutes on the phone, and never in person.  I think that's a bit more than just remembering some slightly fuzzy happy memory with longing...

Well, it's still essentially what I am suggesting.  You remember the Andie that once loved you, and miss that feeling, even though she doesn't feel the same way, anymore.  You two are just friends, now, and she has no obligation or commitment to you in the least.  It's essentially what she seemed to want, as saddening or frustrating as that is...

\n\n
KorivakPosted: 11-29-2001 19:34:05
   Well, we talked.  She didn't bother coming over or even calling me, instead choosing to talk over ICQ, while no doubt talking to several other friends at the same time so as to maximize her time as she does in all things now.  God knows actually dedicating a whole hour this month to me exclusively is right out, even if the topic is very serious.
   If the first one to get angry loses an argument, then it was a big race right out of the starting blocks to see which of us would lose first.  I've bottled up so much stuff over the last two years, carefully hiding it away like a greedy man hiding away diamonds, desperately sacrificing myself a bit at a time to try to make the relationship as smooth as possible, and she has caused me so much pain and misery, that try as I might, I can't stop myself from hurling anger and hostility at her as hard as I can at every chance.  Shawn can vouch for how vicous I can be when angry, wielding the launguage and my talent as a writer like a broadsword.  She, on the other hand, has never been one to deal well with even the slightest bit of negitive emotion well, and I would imagine that by now she is quite sick of me, so was in top form to meet hostility and aggression with hostility and stubburness.  It was not a pleasent chat.  My secret hope was that I might be able to find even the smallest scrap of residual positive emotion towards me and try to build something from it, but I don't think there is such a thing anymore.
   It deeply saddens me, because I, like a totally naive romantic fool, though that this would last forever.  We got along so well for two whole years, had maybe one minor fight once every year or so, spent hours and hours together, got along perfectly, and were completely in love and best friends at the same time.
   But as I look back on it all, I realize that almost the entire relationship was at my expense.  I was so in love and so wanted to make things work that I would make any sacrifice and suppress all my wants and needs so as to avoid trying to force her into making a sacrifice.  I would probably have spent my life doing the exact same thing if she hadn't lost all intrest in her old life and her old friends and dumped me, but only after several months of stringing me along while I waited for the certain resumption of the relationship.  I've been a fucking moron about the whole thing, albeit a sweet, harmless one.  Maybe one day I'll stop falling for the ones I can never have and find a girl that is actually calm and quiet, but still sweet and open, instead of girls that are just distant and emotionless...
KorivakPosted: 11-29-2001 20:31:45
   We talked again, we both apologized, and ended things on a bit better of terms, but I'm still all alone in life...

And the angel of the lord came unto me, snatching me up from my place of slumber. And took me on high, and higher still until we moved to the spaces betwixt the air itself. And he brought me into a vast farmlands of our own midwest. And as we descended, cries of impending doom rose from the soil. One thousand, nay a million voices full of fear. And terror possesed me then. And I begged, "Angel of the Lord, what are these tortured screams?" And the angel said unto me, "These are the cries of the carrots, the cries of the carrots! You see, Reverend Maynard, tomorrow is harvest day and to them it is the holocaust." And I sprang from my slumber drenched in sweat like the tears of one million terrified brothers and roared, "Hear me now, I have seen the light!

And I sprang from my slumber drenched in sweat like the tears of one million terrified brothers and roared, "Hear me now, I have seen the light! They have a consciousness, they have a life, they have a soul! Damn you! Let the rabbits wear glasses! Save our brothers!" Can I get an amen? Can I get a hallelujah?

Obviously, Fron, because you're using a browser that sucks ass.  Use Opera.

Yes, actually, it is very much like when you say "Undertow".  You'd better run back to your silly little red forum before I decide not to let you anymore.

I stayed home again today meaning I stayed home one complete school/work week (5 days). I am feeling 90% better today, too.

As some of you might know, I just received Diablo2...I think I might have gotten it for my birthday in August. GAVAL gave it to me, so I might have gotten it around the time he came in around September 11, 2001. Anyway, I finally defeated Baal, and when I was in Nightmare on level 1 all I could say was TIMMAH because I didn't know what the heck happened. I guess destroying the Worldstone was basically the end or something and now I have to go through the game again to get to hell. I dono...I'm kinda confused.

I'm on level 39 or 40 (I think) for my highest character which is a Barbarian. This is also the one I used to kill Baal.

just out of curiosity, have you tried the manual eject pin on the front of the CDRW? (probably just a little hole, but it's quite visible)

might be worth giving that a shot before you disassemble things and cart them somewhere else.

Oh, yeah forgot to mention...I did pry it open gently, and when I did a gear fell out...I was just sitting there like...nice...really great. I think I can exchange it, though.

might be worth giving that a shot before you disassemble things and cart them somewhere else.

Heh...I took it out and out it on my desk ready to be boxed and returned.

Excuse the bragging, but I am impressed with myself and my knowledge of computers. When I got my computer almost 1.5 years ago, I didn't nearly even KNOW what ICQ was...now I've gone from putting in a CD burner to upgrading RAM to reformatting and learning a lot of the basics. I'm kinda proud of myself...especially since I didn't even bother to look at my computer manual...I learned on my own...so yeah I did try it...but like I said..a gear fell out and I just sat there and said to myself, TIMMAH!\n\n

when I got my first x86 computer (I had a C=64 before that) 10 or so years ago, I had no idea what I was doing with it, for the most part (I COULD program in BASIC at age 5, though. Well - a LITTLE before that, but it was limited to PRINT commands)

And lo, now I consider 99% of the population to be... how to put this nicely... "complete fucking retards" when it comes to computers.

You'd think people would take a LITTLE time to learn how to effectively use something they'll likely be using for work and such for the rest of their employed lives.

Oh well, the fact that they don't only makes people with a clue look so much more impressive and smart and such.

80-1002268887Posted: 12-02-2001 11:00:28
Hehe, it's kinda funny. 6 years or so ago I knew barely nothing about computers, and was still able to install a cd-rom drive(My first cd-rom drive even!).

I knew barely nothing about computers, then I got Cyrus, my IBM Ambra 11E. That thing, while being a decent system at the time: a whole 155mhz(Don't ask me. Cyrix is wierd), 16mb of ram, and a 2.1gb hard drive, was so full of problems it wasn't funny. Being a pre-built system, especially one made by IBM at that time, it had compatibility issues up the wazoo.

I owe most of what I know about computers to having to fix problems on Cyrus. I loathe that system, but in a way, I thank it for making me who I am today. Something on it seems physically damaged now, so it no longer works, but the monitor still sees some action. It's hooked up to Fluufly. Sure it has colour issues and flickers an awful lot, but it's still being put to use, and soon, my grandfather will be using it.

Spankotron is definately the best system I've had, and what's more, I put the entire thing together myself(Minus installing the processor) and had no problems, except the disk drive issue which seemed to solve itself.

I also built Shawns computer(With Korivak's help), since it's nearly identical to mine. He's just got a Geforce2 rather than a Voodoo3, and it as well had no problems, except the disk drive issue which seemed to solve itself.

Easy way around that. Windows 2000 doesn't like being installed on one system and then being transfered over to another, but since my computer was nearly identical, and in Shawns house at the time, I was able to install Win2k on that, and move the hard drive over to his computer.

And in a month or two, I'm going to upgrade Spanky's ram to it's max of 1.5gb or so, since it'll cost me about the same as the 256mb that's in there now cost me a year ago. Then my next step is a Geforce3, and possibly an extra Geforce2(Since mixing other video cards will result in some 3d accelaration not working with dual monitors), and another monitor(I still really want one of those flat LCD ones), and I'll be all set for what I want to use my computer for.

Some people say it's overkill and I'll never need it, but they haven't gone from using a similar system with a 21" monitor for 3DS Max to a half as powerful system with a 17" monitor. I'm getting half the resolution. Dual monitors is extra fun since Max supports it, so I could have my toolbars and stuff on one screen, and my viewports fullscreen on the other. =)

But as I look back on it all, I realize that almost the entire relationship was at my expense.  I was so in love and so wanted to make things work that I would make any sacrifice and suppress all my wants and needs so as to avoid trying to force her into making a sacrifice.

Maybe that was what went wrong...a relationship requires balance, giving and taking. By only give you became more like a slave than a partner, not offering any counter-weight (or whatever the term is) to her. By so supressing your owns needs and wants you lose your identity. While exactly that identity is what keeps the relationship together. As noble as such self-sacrifice might seem, becoming a mindless slave is destructive to a relationship. It's just as bad as total dominance over the other.

Let's help Mr. Dumbass again.

You see Nighteye...chicks are like cats. They require attention. Lots of attention. If you ARE a cat lover, you GIVE those cats lots of attention out of love.

Since men love women, men often treat women like cats. We give women lots of attention. We give them gifts and flatter them-->tell them how nice they look and tell them to keep their heads up when they are feeling down. It's not being a slave. It's FEELING and having EMOTIONS for someone that you care for. And in a lot of cases if you don't show your girl a lot of attention, you get dumped.

Another thing I can say is that love (which you are too stupid to know about) makes people do crazy things. And when you are in love, you will dothe craziest things for the one you care about...from taking her to dinner, movies, buying her expensive things even though you really can't afford it.

It's not being a slave, dumbass...it's being in love and caring for someone.

Raider, you obviously know nothing about it, and really should look for a pair of glasses.

Like I already said, a relationship is about giving and taking, and about balance. To give exclusively is a bad thing, and that doesn't mean you shouldn't give at all, Mr. jump-to-obviously-wrong-conclusions.

Raider, you obviously know nothing about it, and really should look for a pair of glasses.

You have no clue, do you?

Like I already said, a relationship is about giving and taking, and about balance. WRONG. A relationship is about giving, and you take what you are given...relationships have NOTHING to do with balance. To give exclusively is a bad thingHow is this? To make a relationship work you have to go half the way and the other person has to too. You give...she receives and is thankful and will show you love for what you have done., and that doesn't mean you shouldn't give at all, Mr. jump-to-obviously-wrong-conclusions. I never said you said that, Mr. Dumbass.

A relationship is about giving, and you take what you are given

IF you're given something. And that's what I mean by taking: if you give a LOT more than you receive, talk about it. Don't put ignore it and let it fester.
Which also says something about balance.

How is this? To make a relationship work you have to go half the way and the other person has to too. You give...she receives and is thankful and will show you love for what you have done.

"and the other person has to too." Exactly what I've been saying. Do you even comprehend even a tiny bit of what you read? What you overlook is that it also happens sometimes that a girl isn't thankful when given something, but expects it, and is scorned when she is not given it.

I never said you said that, Mr. Dumbass.

Didn't you? Then what about your ranting about the virtues of giving, rather than actually replying to my arguments? The implication was overly obvious. Even a fool would notice it...that you didn't...

Well, draw your own conclusions...if you can.

No. Be happy with giving even though you are not receiving :p

I shouldn't have said has. I should have said needs. You don't HAVE to do anything to have a good relationship. If a girl doesn't receive what she wants, or doesn't like the person because she didn't receive something, then that's her problem. The guy did as much as he could.

Do you even comprehend even a tiny bit of what you read?Obviously I do that more than you do.

and that doesn't mean you shouldn't give at all
Didn't you? Then what about your ranting about the virtues of giving, rather than actually replying to my arguments? The implication was overly obvious. Even a fool would notice it...that you didn't..

Show me one time where I said that you said people shouldn't give. People don't have to give. People may not give anything, but be perfectly happy with their love...I still do not believe in that balance system. If one gives more than the other so what? The one that gives shouldn't expect MUCH if ANYTHING in return anyway.
Eye of the NightPosted: 12-02-2001 17:19:39
No. Be happy with giving even though you are not receiving

And how long would you keep that up? 80 years? And what good would you be to a girl on the long term, if you show no backbone at all?

The guy did as much as he could.

No. He could talk about it with her, and by so doing possibly save the relationship.

The one that gives shouldn't expect MUCH if ANYTHING in return anyway.

Yes, not in return. The one that gives MAY expect to be given about as much as he gives, not in return for what he gives, but for who he is; the same reason he gives - for who she is.
RaiderPosted: 12-02-2001 17:31:28
Okay...I HAVE to go study after this post...so this is my last post for a while

And how long would you keep that up? 80 years? And what good would you be to a girl on the long term, if you show no backbone at all?

It should keep up a long time. The girl and the guy (really) should both be happy that they have themselves.

And what good would you be to a girl on the long term, if you show no backbone at all?

Show backbone? What do you mean by that. Clarify that. You aren't amusing if you don't WANT to receive? I think that's bull. You can be amusing (even though that's not the word I'm looking for) in many ways...there are many different ways that you can show you're a cool person and what ways? That's determined by the guy himself.

   Which brings me to my next point...shut up about my personal life.  Sure, I posted some stuff on a public forum because I wanted someone to talk to, and then I stopped almost immediatly and let it drop.  You, on the other hand, have turned this, like everything that you rub your greasy prose on, into a tedious, extended debate.  And while you are normally talking out of your ass when you post, you're even worse this time because you're trying to discuss my love life, which only two people in the world are qualified to do.
   So shut up.

   Nothing of great interest happened today, so to avoid boredom and a chance of sliding into bitter black thoughts, I watched Cowboy Bebop.  Episode after episode of Bebop.  The whole last two thirds of the series, in fact, except for the last three episodes, which I'm about to watch now.  I have a soft spot for dark, melodramatic love stories, and the end of Bebop is most certainly that.

Raider is, in fact, being more ridiculous than Eye of the Night in this instance.  First, he compared women to cats with a strange simplification, and then made it clear that successful relationships do not have to be symmetrical.

I don't care if he has "contacts".  I have repeated experience with both mature and immature relationships, firsthand.  Experience contradicts most of Raider's claims instantaneously, though common sense is also working against him.  The same can be said about Nighteye, though.

In short:  You're both useless.

Anybody who tries to give relationships as a whole one statement IS wrong.

People are individuals. Attempting to define all of the romantic/sexual/etc. aspects of all mankind with one definiton would be difficult enough (and impossible, I beleive), without doing it two at a time.

Every possible relationship, every of the trillion or whatever different possible pairings of human beings has different sides to it then the other. Every partner has different needs and wants and goals. To do what some of you are trying to do is foolish.

I also remember a half-week before the exam one guy turned around (our backs were facing one another) and asked me what the "b" tag was.

I was speechless for about two seconds, then blinked, then iterated "Um, it's the bold tag . . .".  I was thanked and then I continued to stare blankly at the guy's back.

Only then I think I realised why the course was so damned simple.  Not to bore me, but to cater to people like him.

Korivak, it moved beyond anything related to you to the general topic. And besides, the thread IS called "random", which not only means that the topics within are random, but also that the lenght of discussion about each topic is random. So that includes the occasional long-winded discussion.

Do not give me shit about "Dutch women", you clueless yutz.

You lack experience with relationships in general, and the comments both you and Raider are making are very silly and quite aptly display said lack of experience.  Others agree, even if they are not as terribly vocal regarding it.

Argue this previous paragraph all you wish, but my perceptions of your previous comments are not likely to change.  Argue that I have some predisposition towards you if you want, but I will consistently disagree with you when you claim such things.  Argue definitions or make more outrageous-yet-vague-and-unfounded claims if it tickles your fancy, but I shall ignore them after briefly labeling them what they are.

In short:  Give it up, already.

And this thread is for random, unconnected thoughts, as opposed to entire discussions.  Create a "Relationships" thread so you can spout your utter bullshit and theories about ze women if you so wish, but stop bickering with everyone in this thread.  Korivak created it, and now Korivak is asking you to kindly shut the fuck up, you pretentious, unpopular nincompoop.

Speaking of random crap... man I love seeing some of the stuff people put in passport application envelopes.

Today I got a rather thick envelope, and I knew that meant one of two things: a few sets of divorce papers, or something fun. It turned out to be something fun indeed.

Upon opening it, I pulled out two things. One was a large newspaper image of Tiger Wood's face with a few other pictures of him, cut out of a newspaper, glued to it, with writing on it. Looked like passages from a book of some sort. It was glued to a cardboard frame, and at the top, in different handwriting, was written "Do I care if you all kill me I dont think so!!!!  If and when is my promble na you all seem!!", I copied that down cause it seemed rather odd.

Along with that was a letter. The letter, in the same writing as the quotes on the newspaper image, but not the thing at the top, was about sorcerers and stuff. I think it eventually went on to quote Nostradamus.

And to top it all off, whoever it was didn't even send a passport application!!!

It's amazing what shows up in passport application envelopes...

kwerkey, because, like me

a) it gets done the fastest when you have the most stress, so you have the least amount of time used but with the most pressure.
b) you can't procrastinate anymore in good conscience because you know you won't get it done otherwise,
c) you like challenging yourself because in this situation you actually have an obvious time limit,
d) you're a lazy moron and/or
e) you just don't get it?

   We're learning about tables now.  Right now, we're discussing tables for information, but soon we'll be doing tables for layout.  I personally don't use tables for layout, but the CSS box model is counter-intuitive as hell, which makes it a difficult skill to learn.

Is it weird when you can almost get a scotch tape roll around both your wrists, or three-quarters of the way over your bicep?

Mind me, I'm on a caffiene high.

(EDIT:  Did I mention this tape roll has an inner diameter of three inches?)\n\n
OsirisPosted: 12-06-2001 13:42:09
I could never get CSS box layouts to work as well as tables.  I don't know if it's a limitation in the system, or if there's just something I'm overlooking.
rRaminrodtPosted: 12-06-2001 13:50:06
I always wondered why absolute positioning always is based on just the page.  Why can't you make it work off a particular containing element?
KorivakPosted: 12-06-2001 14:39:06
   The box model is pretty confusing, but once you figure it out, you can do some damn good layout work and never touch tables.  Basically, in CSS everything has a box around it, so building a page is like playing with building blocks as a kid.  In CSS, you build outwards, adding new things above, below, to the left or right of existing objects, but with tables, you build inwards, slicing up a block of space into smaller and smaller sections.  Trying to use CSS the same way you would use tables doesn't work, it requires a whole new approach.
BrawnfirePosted: 12-06-2001 15:52:43
Surely you don't mean scotch tape... scotch tape is the clear mildy adhesive tape that comes in the little rolls... do you mean masking tape?

Please say yes.
OsirisPosted: 12-06-2001 15:58:17
: I always wondered why absolute positioning always is based on just the page.  Why can't you make it work off a particular containing element?

That's what relative positioning is for?  Am I misunderstanding here..?

: he box model is pretty confusing, but once you figure it out, you can do some damn good layout work and never touch tables.

Here's the problem I have with CSS layouts.  Say I have a lot of tabular data, and I don't know how much data in advance is going to be there.  If I wanted to align the boxes, like a calendar, I need to create it on a column-by-column basis rather than a row-by-row basis, which is difficult and less efficient programatically.

That's what I just don't understand.  Again, maybe I just haven't played with it enough.
DebtAngelPosted: 12-06-2001 16:06:35
Osiris:
Isn't tabular data what tables are for? :)

Brawnfire:
I'm guessing he actually means packing tape, which is clear and comes in bigger rolls than Scotch tape.

Yes, that is exactly how it came to me.  confused=me.
OsirisPosted: 12-06-2001 16:29:52
: Isn't tabular data what tables are for?

Yeah! hehe, but what I'm getting at is that some people act like CSS DIVs and positioning can replace any table scenario, and I just can't seem to be able to do it with any accuracy.  At the very least, they just don't work as easily as tables.
\n\n
KorivakPosted: 12-06-2001 16:47:11
   Why would you make a table with CSS?  That makes no sense at all.  CSS is for visual appearance only, HTML tables are for table data.  They're designed for what they're meant for, not for what their not meant for...
OsirisPosted: 12-06-2001 17:55:14
Make up your mind.  One minute you're saying if you master CSS box layouts, you can do away with tables, and the next you're patronizing me for questioning if that's possible.

\n\n
KorivakPosted: 12-06-2001 18:07:55
   You can do away with using tables for layout with CSS.  If you need a table for presenting data (the original purpose of tables), then tables always were and always will be the best way of doing it...
OsirisPosted: 12-06-2001 18:27:57
Alright, that's where you lost me the first time.

Still, I maintain that there are people who claim you can do everything with CSS, and I'd like to find out exactly what they mean by that.
kwerkeyPosted: 12-06-2001 18:39:48
Pfft, CSS really is all you need.  Nobody uses HTML anymore, XML is stupid, and XHTML is horrible.

Bleh.
Flash is annoying.

What about all the poor souls, running lynx on VT100 terminals? huh? WHAT ABOUT THEM?

On a completely unrelated note, for an OAC computers project, I did an all-flash site with tons of pretty graphics and such.

It was ungodly large and stupid, but I learned long ago that when it comes to high school CS projects, the actual APPLICATION of said project doesn't matter. Efficiency doesn't matter. Standards-compliance doesn't matter. The only thing that matters is impressing the class so you get high "peer evaluation" marks from the people who couldn't tell strncmp from strcmpi if their life depended on it.

All you need to do is talk about how "oh, all modern browsers either ship with flash or support the plugin" anyway.

Blah. HS was SUCH a waste of time when it came to CS.
Hell, the day we spent sitting around making Cat-5 patch cables was probably more useful than anything else... err - because I got to grab some cables and take them home for personal use. Heh, heh.

I doubt broadband will ever come out here, the phone line can barely support sub 56k speeds, and there isnt even cable tv here (except for the line they ran special for our house, no one else has cable.  everyone else wants satellite out here I guess, so they never felt the need to wire the houses for cable.)

If you're using cannons as a form of propulsion, aiming EOTN's at dangerous things would send him awayfrom them...

actually, what you need is some kind of very highly conductive outer shell.

What you can do then is run a very strong electrical current through the projectile, at a perpendicular angle to a very strong magnetic field. Run both of these fields perpendicular to the direction you want the force to be applied, and go!

Having some REALLY big-ass capacitors helps, as you can release a LOT of energy into the system in a very short amount of time without the use of your own personal nuclear power plant. Just make sure the chassis and components can stand the kinds of energy you're putting into this thing.

Oh, and REALLY spend time making sure you calculate your normals right.

If you're using the item shot out of the cannon to propel EOTN, well, that's a different story, then you simply aim at whatever you want him to hit, provided he's actually between the cannon and the target, but if you plan to propel him using the cannon itself (now making the assumption he is attached to it or somethign of similar relevance), then I am right, you'd want to aim the opposite direction, because the blast will send you away from wherever you are aiming.

Also, (either way, I'm more right than wrong), as clearification, I, for some reason, assumed it was some big flying nuclear comic book photon ray cannon or something. =)
DebtAngelPosted: 12-12-2001 10:08:19
Bevy Bevy Bevy,

EotN is not attached to the cannon. He's in the cannon. As the ammunition.

We very much want to point the cannon at the bad stuff, as EotN will be propelled away from the cannon at a very high velocity, and into the bad stuff. Where the cannon goes after we fire EotN out of it is quite irrelevant.

Of course, we're smart around here, and have accounted for recoil. That way, the cannon won't fly away on us in some random direction, so it will still be there when we decide to fire you out of it.

Edit: Spelling mistake. Oh, and if you are about to use the "what about the lack of gunpowder in EotN" argument, I highly suggest you go to the circus. If the circus can fire people out of cannons, then by gum we can too.
\n\n
VéKTöRPosted: 12-12-2001 10:16:24
besides, very few old cannons had their ammunition and propellant in one nice convenient package.

You just jam the gunpowder down the barrel, followed by EOTN.

Actually, a breech-loader would be even better, but probably overly complicated for the simple application we'll be using this for.

Found this on another forum found it amusing :)

Computers Versus Cars

Bill Gates, CEO of Microsoft, reportedly compared the computer industry with the auto industry and stated "If GM had kept up with technology like the computer industry has, we would all be driving $25 cars that got 1,000 miles per gallon."

Recently General Motors addressed this comment by releasing this statement:

"Yes, but would you want your car to crash twice a day?"

1. Every time they repainted the lines on the road you would have to buy a new car.

2. Occasionally your car would die on the freeway for no reason, and you would just accept this, restart, and drive on.

3. Occasionally, executing a maneuver would cause your car to stop and fail and you would have to re-install the engine. For some strange reason, you would accept this, too.

4. You could only have one person in the car at a time, unless you bought CarNT. But, then you would have to buy more seats.

5. Macintosh would make a car that was powered by the sun, was reliable, five times as fast, twice as easy to drive, but would only run on five percent of the roads.

6. The Macintosh car owners would get expensive Microsoft upgrades to their cars, which would make their cars run much slower.

7. The oil, gas, and alternator warning lights would be replaced by a single "general car default" warning light.

8. New seats would force everyone to have the same size butt.

9. The airbag system would say "Are you sure?" before going off.

10. If you were involved in a crash, you would have no idea what happened.

Like the teacher's decision to play that song where they sing the entire periodic table of elements during one of our tests.

Hmm
come to think of it, Gr. 12 physics was GLORY.

See, our experiments semi-regularly involved demonstrating said experiment by making FOOD with lab equipment.

Why can forget the s'mores we made with bunsen burners?
Roasting marshmallows over a hot blue natural gas flame is just SO WRONG, but it feels so GOOD! (partial decomposition of gelatin saccharides)

And the time we made toffee in class (glassy solids).
And the time we made peanut brittle in class (glassy solids again. I think he REALLY liked that topic)

mmm.

More classes should be taught with the aid of FOOD.
DebtAngelPosted: 12-13-2001 23:11:39
You guys had gas? Lucky bastards.

You see, in my Grade 8 year (the year before High School), there was a...minor accident at what was then my future high school.

A science lab blew up.

Fortunately, nobody was seriously hurt, and it caused a lot more smoke than actual explosion/debris/fire/pain/lots of pain/etc. Unfortunately, it meant that the gas was turned off in all science labs, and to my knowledge it was never turned back on, with the exception of one lab.

Of course, that meant the science teachers got to play with butane torches when they needed an open flame.

Roasting marshmallows on a hot plate is far messier, and not nearly as much fun.

I killed my first deer last Sunday. Only a spike, though...still a nice deer.

There was a HUGE deer killed right where we hunt. The circumference of the base of the deer's antlers is almost 6 inches. BIG DEER! It almost sank the guys pirogue twice when he tried to bring it out. I have a picture from an arcticle, but I don't have any webspace to put it on :(

Anyway, that was for those who appreciate hunting.
Eye of the NightPosted: 12-14-2001 21:07:23
And those who do not appreciate hunting can, of course, call you a murderer. I myself will not however, because the deer might've been eaten afterwards, although food probably wasn't the primary reason for killing that deer, which would be just as bad - but that's all speculation.
ßetaMantisPosted: 12-14-2001 21:12:45

RaiderPosted: 12-14-2001 21:14:21
Nighteye.

People can call hunters a murderer. This is an argument that will probably never end because we (the forumers) never come to an agreement on this subject.

See, I am a Catholic. I believe in God. I see it this way. God put animals on Earth for people to kill and eat to survive. He also added horns which makes people want to kill. Yes, some people will kill and waste the meat (it is certain that SOME people do that). REAL sportsmen in my eyes kill for the trophy and the meat. Hunters respect one another, and killing a deer doesn't mean that you are a murderer. I see it like this. God put humans on Earth to expand and multiply. He put animals on Earth for meat, some for pets, etc. That is my view. If you don't believe in God, oh well.
Eye of the NightPosted: 12-14-2001 21:15:07

Eye of the NightPosted: 12-14-2001 21:21:28
Yes, I understand your viewpoint. I myself don't believe in God, or any other almighty entity for that matter. But I believe in spirits.
We are spirits inhabiting a human body, and just the same, there are spirits inhabiting the body of a deer. Each spirit uses it's body to play a part in a sort of massive role-playing-game.
Robbing another spirit of it's avatar (or body) without a good cause would not be fair play. No matter the kind of avatar that spirit is using.

You utterly fail to convince me of your argument, Chause.

Now, I won't argue AGAINST you per se, as I don't personally think there's anything wrong with hunting in and of itself.

Just that your justification of it needs some serious rethinking.

It's not the "animals make good food" or equivalent comments that I disagree with.

It's the "the sole reasons animals exist is for humans to exploit" that I disagree with.

It's just too bloody species-egotistical, going around saying that the sole purpose of the Earth is for our personal gain.

The Earth is here, we're on it.
Animals are on it too, and some species (and derivatives thereof) have been around way longer than humans have.
They all have their own complex interactions too (re: the food chain, predator/prey population cycles, etc.)

To think that everything around us was put here for the sole express purpose of being exploited by us, as a species, is a little over the top.
RaiderPosted: 12-14-2001 23:37:56
ßeta and Vektor.

ßeta, I never said we should shoot animals because we are superior, and Vektor, I never said animals are here only for us to annihilate. I will restate MY belief, and I will leave it at this.

God first made humans. Then he made animals, etc. He made animals for people to survive off of, and he made humans prosper throughout the world. Without animals, we wouldn't have food. I don't go out and shoot for the heck of it. I don't go out and shoot JUST for fun. I go for meat, a nice rack, and good quality animals. God made us to eat SOME of the animals he created, some to befriend, some to later be studied (dinosaurs).

So let me say it better.

God made humans to prosper (multiply) in this world. He picked us to be superior (in thinking, etc.) than other Earth creatures. He gave us the things we needed to survive, and this includes meat such as deer, squirrel, etc. We USE this meat, and we USE it to survive as well as to boast on the quality of this animal that we are able to kill. I think he put horns on deer, for example, for us to have SOME pride, not just meat, in what we killed. He put meat there and we should use it to prosper. I never said we should shoot them because we are superior to them, and I never said that we need to go on a war against animals and annihiliate them, either.

Everyone can have their own opinion on this, and no Vektor, I'm not really YET referring to this as an argument, therefore I don't see the need for me to spend so much time supporting my opinions. After all, all they are are my opinions. Now realize that if I did see this more of an argument, I would try to support my opinions more.

There's my two cents, and I stand at that. If you don't understand what I am saying, maybe someone else can explain what I'm trying to say in simpler terms.
VéKTöRPosted: 12-14-2001 23:51:24
Raider, your statement that humans were the first creatures is wrong.

Your statement that humans "subdued" dinosaurs is wrong. Humans never existed at the same point in time as dinosaurs -- the big lizards came first.

And even if we DID, how can you possibly claim humans killed them off? They were physically superior to us in just about every way. I doubt that many of the primitive instruments that would theoretically be available at that point in history would be physically capable of enabling us to hunt them to extinction, even if our numbers WERE sufficient to do such, which all evidence regarding population trends would suggest it WOULDN'T be.

And I'm not claiming that you said because we're superior, we're supposed to go out and shoot them all for the hell of it.

The word I used was exploit -- which means basically to employ to the advantage of self, or something reasonably similar. Exploit doesn't necessarily convey a negative or evil intent.

All I'm saying is that it's bloody arrogant to believe that all the Earth, and every living thing on it was created soley for our benefit.

So, in short, you've missed my core point entirely, thinking that I'm contending that it's evil to kill animals or whatnot (I basically agree with you on everything BUT the reasoning for your conclusions). In addition, you've also outright disregarded everything we know about the development of the Earth, and stated blatant falsehoods (Humans existed before dinosaurs).
RaiderPosted: 12-15-2001 00:01:05
I meant dinosaurs came before, of course, but then I started off from the beginning of man-kind.

I'm not even a christian, and yet I'm still fairly sure that if he existed, he made humans with free will, (i.e. no purpose).

VéKTöRPosted: 12-15-2001 00:18:56
Ehh, not only that they came first, but that they never occupied the Earth at the same time as far as we know.

Anyway, I'm NOT saying I'm against killing animals for food and such.

I AGREE WITH YOU ON THAT.

just not your justification of it.

See, here's the difference broken down:

Raider: Animals and the Earth were created for mankind to exploit.

Vekky: Animals and the Earth exist because that's the way they developed. It just happens that we developed in a way such that it's convenient for us to exploit them.

There's nothing inherently wrong about making hamburgers from a cow (although it's becoming increasingly harder to find burgers that actually ARE made from cow ;)) -- in fact, I enjoy hamburgers (REAL ONES. The kind we make ourself without the filler. On the BBQ... mmmmm!) quite a bit.

All I'm saying is that the cow wasn't created specifically to serve our needs. They just happened to be there, and provide a source of food, so we ate them. It's just the natural order of things.

Given, I'm not much for organized religions, or really any kind of religion that I've encountered to date. The way I see things, is that humans are just another animal. Given, we've developed complex communities and social structures, technology, medicines, physics, contemplated existence, the meaing of life, etc. But despite all that, we are still just animals -- albeit relatively advanced ones (comparable to the other species we've encountered at any rate). Our existences have no more inherent worth than any other animal. Given, we may be inherently superior in many ways (mental capability would be a good starting point) -- we are also inferior in many ways (your average human can't outrun a fairly large number of the species living on our planet, for example)

And Shawn, unless you're gonna be an ass too, though I doubt it, could you also answer my question: "Could you possibly clearify why me engaging slightly in a debate started by EOTN ("twit" of the night? How in the hell is that clever...?) suggests I lack will power and should concede?"
Sexay ShawnPosted: 12-15-2001 01:03:55
I did read your entire post, smartass.  Despite the fact that you were being clearly sarcastic, I felt you had missed important details which rendered your point silly.

I'm more perceptive than you give me credit for.

Now go find someone else to pester.

VéKTöRPosted: 12-15-2001 01:06:46
I dunno, it looked like the only real point you were trying to impress upon me was that it was fine for Korivak to make said request, and I think the "Naaaah, just screwin with ya!" at the end was pretty clear in making it known that the post was not ment in any real serious manner.

EDIT:
I doubt the part to which I refer was "talking to Bevy", as he quoted a portion of my original post.

That was primarily a response to Eye of the Night, you dolt -- hence the paragraph directly below it, mentioning him in specific.

I told participants that they lacked willpower because they couldn't resist an argument whenever it sprung itself, despite the inappropriate.  Eye of the Night demonstrated this by saying he would cease arguing, only to hilariously respond to his very own post.

If it helps your ego, I did not have you in mind at all when I had written that post.  *grins*

   I gave up debating earlier this year.  I find I can no longer tolerate the style of debate which has become popular in the world.  It strikes me as a bunch of juvanile posturing and ad hominim assualts mixed with tired cliches and far more passion than reason.  It's silly and I am content with my life without being forced into asserting intillectual dominence on everyone else to feed my ego.  I just want to talk and make light hearted sarcastic remarks these days.  Go talk to NightEye (the NightTwit thing is, as always, a rediculous joke...) if you want a long debate...

RaiderPosted: 12-15-2001 11:07:50
All I'm saying is that the cow wasn't created specifically to serve our needs. They just happened to be there, and provide a source of food, so we ate them. It's just the natural order of things.

Deer also "just happened to be there, and provide a source of food." Killing a cow and killing a deer, or a dog, or a cat for that matter is all the same thing, right?

Given, I'm not much for organized religions, or really any kind of religion that I've encountered to date. The way I see things, is that humans are just another animal. Given, we've developed complex communities and social structures, technology, medicines, physics, contemplated existence, the meaing of life, etc. But despite all that, we are still just animals -- albeit relatively advanced ones (comparable to the other species we've encountered at any rate). Our existences have no more inherent worth than any other animal. Given, we may be inherently superior in many ways (mental capability would be a good starting point) -- we are also inferior in many ways (your average human can't outrun a fairly large number of the species living on our planet, for example)

Even though we do have SOME inferiorities, I still can't see how you can believe humans are animals. We have minds, animals have instincts, and that's about it. They rely more on instincts than their mind.

-------------------------------------------

I'd kind of like it if you guys would stop going through this same goddamn tired debate in my thread.  I have, in my life, spent more time listening to and trying to avoid this debate than a great many other, more pleasent things, and going through it all yet again makes me feel tired and pissed off.  I have found that this is an issue that can be discussed forever without any kind of conclusion for the simple fact that everyone has a strong opinion on it and no one will ever change that opinion.  (I'm sure NightTwit is drooling over that idea...)
  If you want to get into this shit, don't bring it in my thread.  Thank you.


Okay...this is MY last argumentive post on this thread UNLESS I see the need to argue. Korivak, as much as I hate to say it, I have to agree with Bevy here. This is a RANDOM THREAD meaning that it doesn't have a topic. It can be spammed and argued, etc. You can't come in and say stop discussing random arguments in the random thread. It doesn't make sense. EVEN THOUGH you made this thread, it technically isn't yours because it has NO point, and it's more for the people (other forumers) than it is for you. If you would have been asking for assitance, advice, etc. it would be a different story. You just don't have the right to come in and say, "Stop discussing this argument in MY thread because I have discussed it many of times before and haven't gotten anywhere!" It doesn't make sense because:

  • We can discuss in this thread if we want because it IS a random thread.

  • It's not YOUR thread (even though you made it) as I have stated above

  • Just because you (and I HAVE argued with you in your favor, I think (because you like to hunt)) don't like this argument because YOU haven't been able to change anyone's mind doesn't mean that we don't need to stop this argument completely. Maybe someone else can hold it better than you can, even though it IS an argument that will probably NEVER be concluded among online forums such as this. You just can't come in and say STOP discussing this because it's MY thread (even though I've already ruled that out) and I have tried discussing it before. That's almost stupid, in my opinion.


  • Okay...there's my argumentive 2 cents. I will respond in response to this argument if necessary, but if no further discussion comes about, this argument drops.

    Fnarr.

    Jammies -- I just use a very large housecoat.
    Works for me, and it's warm + comfortable to boot.

    Weather:
    Err, well it's an odd year. Living in Canada (this part of it anyway), we only got our FIRST SNOW of the year yesterday, in the middle of December. By all rights, we should be half-buried under the stuff by now. And as we speak, it's > 0°C outside, so it's all melting again anyway. It's going to be > 0°C tomorrow and Monday as well, with rain.
    This snow isn't going to last.
    We usually accumulate snow in November.
    Hell, I can personally remember it being cold enough to snow a bit on Halloween before (nothing accumulated though).

    I agree about the grey weather thing.
    Sunny weather is nice and all, but it's usually uncomfortably warm or too damn bright to be comfortable (then again, I am a little photosensitive).
    Light rain is good, in that it usually feels nice, moderate to heavy rain bites.
    Cloudy skies are nice.

    20 isn't that great.
    42 is the meaning of life, the universe, and everything.
    7 is MY number. Stay the hell away from it or I'll have Leroy here *gestures at a hulking, stupid looking half-ogre* visit your families some night.
    MissCheetahPosted: 12-15-2001 15:14:00

    We rarely get snow here and even when we do we only get a couple of inches..most of the time.  Then there are the freak winters we get several storms of over 8".  Even 2 inches is enough to close schools here for at least a day. 8" closes them for a week.  The road crews are quite inept.  I guess as a student I did not complain though :)  It's mostly just cold and grey here in the winter although this month we keep having lots of days in the highs 60's to low 70's F (near 20 degrees C for those who use that system).  I would really love it if it would just stay warm and sunny all year. Winter is depressing and I get cold really quickly.

    I only said I'd try not to argue about the immorality of kiling a deer on a hunt. And I haven't. The reply was only about religious views, still related to hunting since that was what brought it up, but that's all. Just religious views.

    On that I have one more comment: Most organized religions claim humans are the superior species, in one way or another. Yet who created these religions? Humans.

    I will not participate in a thread where EotN is in control.  That was what happened to the Intro thread.  He took control and took away all the fun tech gadgets.  We prefered random chaos with the ultimate goal of destroying EotN and then maybe taking a vacation with MistressBlue or El Caz.  *grumbles* At some point I really should write a story from that thread. I have the lost pages on my comp I believe.

    It's fun to be childish and immature, sometimes.

    Last March, several CWALers (Archangel, Akardam, DarthNinny and I) had a snowball fight -- in a graveyard, no less.  It ended with DarthNinny jumping me and the two of us rolling down a nearby hill.

    Good Times™.
    undertowPosted: 12-15-2001 22:43:19
    I missed that.. it would have been fun. That was Sunday, right? The day I had to leave... oh well.

    It would be nice to have a memory of a snowball fight that didn't end with my face being shoved into the snow so deep that I couldn't breathe, and winding up with a mouthful of snow and gravel.

    c) posted after Ogg the Caveman first discovered fire

    we can conclude that Shawn and Bevy are actually gay lovers, and that Rob likes to skydive into the white house without parachutes.

       I still remember my high school chemesty teacher's demonstration of entropy.  "This is a beaker," he said, holding up same and walking around the room.  "Right now, it exists in a state of order.  But it wants to exist in a more random state."  He then turned towards the front of the room and whipped the beaker at the black board, where it flew apart into a state of entropy.  He then proceded to do this same domonstration with a titration tube with a broken tip and a cracked ten litre bastard child of a bucket and beaker.  Great demo.  He was alway blowing something up or creating poison gas or teasing the students.  It was my favourite class that whole year.

    The most alarming thing about that BetaPants picture is how I can't even tell which ones I wrote and which ones Vektor wrote.

    I think I wrote the sideways red one, but that's just by memory.

    (Thinks)

    There is only one interpretation for this. I must kill Vektor to preserve the sovereignty of my handwriting.

    Edit:

    In reply to Korivak, I wam quite certain that my chemistry teacher would do the same were it not for the fact that the equipment is a tad too expensive to randomly break.
    Despite the practical restrictions on his antics, it IS definitely one of my most entertaining classes.\n\n
    KorivakPosted: 12-19-2001 21:28:25
       Ah, but all the glassware he used was already broken.  It was all chipped or cracked, so he threw it out with an extra step in the process...

    I always liked the exact same example of entropy that the MC Hawking mp3 uses

    namely, using EGGS!

    Oh fun. Looks like my peanut allergy extends into other types of nuts as well. And it appears that I'm starting to have a problem with sea food. AND my wisdom teeth are pushing the rest of my teeth out of place, so I'll probably have to get them taken out, though I haven't been to the dentist in years.

    What fun.

    you haven't been to a dentist in years?

    err - why?

    And I understand j00 (to blatantly rip Megatokyo's claim). One of my wisdom teeth is coming in SIDEWAYS of all things -- so it's pushing against the teeth already there (it's coming in the direction of the teeth, not sticking out into my cheek or tongue or anything).
    Not a big deal, I just have to get it removed, along with the one on top above it. I can keep two of mine! Ha!
    80-1002268887Posted: 12-20-2001 17:18:52
    I really don't know why I haven't seen one in years, I just haven't gotten around to it.

    Oh, and it looks like I'm not allergic to sea food after all. After having a bowl of rice for breakfast this morning, I've come to realize that it was most likely the rice in the sushi I ate that was bothering me rather than the fishy stuff.

    Though not having tried wasabi before, everyone tried to convince me to take a really big spoonful of it. I decided against it due to the fact that it was given to us in such a small proportion(Probably for a reason) and because everyone kept insisting on it.

    You'll be fine.

    I'd equate being emotionally unstable and depressed as being 'worse' than being generally stoic and then suddenly upset at the loss of a relationship.

    One's sudden, harsh, but also temporary.  The other is cosntant, plaguing, and defeating.

    Either way, it's not--and never ought to be--a competition.

    Well, since this is the Random Thread,

    We (my family) exchanged gifts today. I got a bunch of really cool stuff and among this stuff is WinXP (which I have now installed and downloading updates and patches), an mp3 player, a sterling silver chain, clothes, 7 different types of cologne (spelling?), a candle, other small things, pictures of deer and a good picture of a Lab (dog) and its pup. I like Labs. My cousin gave me a picture of my grandmother (on my dad's side) who raised me, but passed away several of years ago. *sighs* Ah, well...I guess it had to happen sooner or later, but we sure do miss her. My dad gave me a cool Browning hunting jacket like he has, too. And to get something from my dad is cool because he usually doesn't get me anything, but I don't really complain.

    Anyway, all my gifts are pretty cool, and overall it was a good day...the only thing that sucks is having to install all of these damn patches.
    OsirisPosted: 12-23-2001 21:21:44
    I got a mixture of beer bread.  Apparently you mix in a can of beer and bake it in an oven, and it makes bread.  Who knows.  I'll go pick up a can of pabst and try it out!  HAHA LOLOL FESTIVITY!!!

    Other than that, I just gave a bunch of gifts to my son.  My wife got me metal gear for the PS2, and I got her a compilation of The Onion articles, some fancy-schmancy mint tea, and a french press single serving coffee maker.

    El cazadorPosted: 12-24-2001 01:25:53
    Okey I'm not one to take cracks at people, but I can't resist myself on this one...

    SEVEN types of cologne!?  Man, they must be trying to tell you something!

    hahaha  LOL!  ok back to the old self.

    We don't exchange presents, we just dump them under the tree and open them in... Nochebuena.  Holy Night or Good Night or whatever the night of the 24th is called in english.

    I'll be getting clothes, probably shirts since I said very loudly and directly that I needed a few new ones.  My GF decided not to buy a new game for me and got me one of those excercise thingies they sell on t.v. to make your abdomen look like a tiled board and blah blah blah, I just know this thing will end up under my bed soon enough.  Oh, and some cool new shorts I'm getting from her, so I don't have to pop up in every pic I take of myself wearing the same black ones.

    There's also a mystery package from my brother, that doesn't exactly look like clothes.  I hope it's hardware or software.  I'm not sure.  And from my side, I gave away:

    To my girlfriend:  A watch.
    To my big brother:  A long sleeved sweater, since he likes them and this one looked particularly cool.
    To my smaller brother:  Reef rubber shoes, very practical in summer and an indirect way of telling him to STOP USING MINE!
    To my sister:  She's not around, so I sent her nothing, except my best wishes for a happy Christmas.
    To my mother:  Looking for some comfy bed clothes for her (3-4 bucks each), couldn't find them and ended up buying her earrings ($54).
    To a good friend of mine and his smaller brother, who love their nintendo64:  No N64 games that they liked, so I gave each $20.

    And to myself... nothing.  I need some boards to put stuff up so my desk doesn't look so crammed and a cd case thingie.  It seems no one cathed these indirect messages I slipped around, so I guess I'll have to get them myself.

    Nah, I think they knew I needed some because I was on one of my last bottles, and I wasn't going to buy any until after Christmas...that and she probably got a discount on them or got them free because she works for Avon, and they sometimes send more than what was ordered, or they will send some just for the heck of it.

    HOW IS IT POSSIBLE FOR MY MOM TO GET ANY WORK DONE ON THIS THING????????????

    Any computer that my dad installs must have some kind of program on it that detects when I'm using it, and crashes itself accordingly.  My mom's computer won't even let me transfer a file from the ZIP drive to the hard drive before it starts reporting that the ZIP disk is unformatted.  It's damn near impossible to open two explorer windows without having the damn thing crash.  My dad's computer is even more amazing.  Until he installed XP on it, it would make up something new every time I used it.  Try to burn a CD?  Hell no.  It dies on me, and now with XP it doesn't work at all.

    Update:  My dad's laptop seems to like me.  AND it's got the IR port built in.  I have a connection to my phone right now.  I wonder if I can find any Tool or Vast sheet music out there...\n\n

    1.  They called him, in regards to the evil spirits.

    2.  They were not his slaves so much as the typical residents of Canada.  In fact, if I am not mistaken, he was speaking to the 'leader' of Canada on the phone...

I got a message on icq saying  "Hey richard's a bitch, lets get him" or something similar.  So I immediately went to the news script and started spamming, then I spammed in forum, then I used an icq message bomber, Then bandwidth and other people joined in.

    I think it all started because something similar to when richard banned people from his battlenet channel for having similar names to his, happened on the day of the spamming and we were all like , fuck that bitch, lets fuck up his shit.\n\n

    I got this while playing with my new diablo2 character.  All those golds came from ONE chest.  There were actually three more that dropped out, but there were so many items on the ground that they didn't show up.  WTF??  (no magic find bonus either)






    This one I just got while trying to post a message.  That's a new error..




    Then of course, just because I like it...

    Sexay ShawnPosted: 01-02-2002 09:04:25
    *chuckles*  I've done so over ICQ, before.  It was many moons ago, and I told you of this.

    I was also able to instantly recognize Dark Nexus when he was attempting to impersonate you, once.
    ßetaMantisPosted: 01-02-2002 10:13:56
    There is a specific method to my madness.  All of my madnesses.  It's just few dare to consider looking for them.

    For example, I capitalise (when italics, bold, colour changing et cetera are not available) is not available for emphasis.  If the word is capitalised anyway (I, for example), I surround it in underscores.  Happens rarely.  I never emphasise with asterisks (confuses with emotes) or hyphens.

    My emoting is always surrounded by asterisks.  And, if you place my alias/name before whatever is in them, it should fit grammatic requirements to be English.  For example, I type "*buries his face in his hands and cries like a schoolgirl*" could be read as "ßetaMantis buries his face in his hands and cries like a schoolgirl."  I often emote without pronouns.  So, I will write that as "*buries face in hands and cries like a schoolgirl*".  I also often put two spaces before and after emoting.  Especially between sentences.

    Also, there's a number of words that I near-completely avoid using without quotation marks (hate, wrong, cool and gay are four prime examples).  And specific ways I spell (read:  I rarely use the letter z).  I use double, or even triple as well as odd contractions, like shouldn't've (should not have), 'twouldn't've (it would not have), d'you (do you), where'd (where did), stomach't (stomach it), et cetera.  I actually speak really fast and enunciate rarely.  I attempt to illustrate this through shortcutting pronounciations a lot.

    I use mostly British spellings.  I capitalise countries, brand names and languages.  I don't capitalise aliases that don't start with a capital.

    I abbreviate more with an apostrophe than a period.  (kwerk', 'Doxy).

    I do not use internet shorthand/internetese.  Ever.  No brbs, no btws, no otohs, no afaiks, no imhos, nothing.

    I don't use emoticons/smilies.

    I also use ellipses (if that's how you spell it) with a space between each period and a space before it and after if anything follows it . . . like that.   I use them too much for many people's opinions.

    I'll often use slightly higher vocabulary (or at the absolute least less frequently seen words).

    I always try to fit with proper English.  Whether I do'r not is another issue.  I extremely rarely use more than one of any punctuation mark.  I always put question marks last.  (An exclaimed question always ends in "!?".  In fact, "?!" tends to bug me for some reason).  I use commas more than most.  I also use hyphens.  I use a dash ("--") to denote abrupt cutting off, an ellipses (". . .") to denote gradual trailing off and a period ("."  *giggles*) to denote normal ending of thoughts/sentences.  I put two spaces after colons, exclamation points, question marks and periods.  One before all hyphens, ellipses and dashes and one after.

    I don't use semicolons because I don't know how they're supposed to be used.

    I never use "?" in a sentence by itself.  I use "Dwah?" (plagirised from one show called Duckman), "Wha?", "Huh?", and so on.  I use a lot of hesitation words "er", "eh", "um", "hrm", et cetera.

    I quote with italics here currently.  Like Shawn does with bold.  And some with the actual quoting in this board.

    I always put my signature here.

    One of the few words that are a sound I'll write is "Pfft." with varying numbers of fs.

    I think that's a good start.  *smirks*

    OsirisPosted: 01-02-2002 10:27:18
    I type without political or racial bias.  My words read as if music to the soul, they tame wild beasts, corrupt kings, and bend the will of the strong with nary a struggle.  Day and night, my apostles study my text for the prophecies they undoubtedly contain.  Educated scholars attempt to mine the secrets of life itself from even the most trivial of my written thoughts. God himself asked me to proofread the bible before releasing it to the public.

    Imitate that, you motherfuckers.

    OsirisPosted: 01-02-2002 14:29:09
    "I'm bored." is a simplified version of something else.  There is more than meets the eye than simple boredom.

    Whether it was an attempt to draw attention to yourself, or something else, simple boredom is a weak excuse. Your explanation "I was bored" is probably quite false, or at least, not the complete reasoning.

    His heart jumped as the darkness closed around him, and there was silence in the tomb.  His wings were caught in an updraft, and the winds grew stronger as the air thickened; darkness choked his sight and smoke filled his throat.  His shoulders began to burn as the mass of his wings was slowly pulled out from his skeleton, the bones seperating and flesh tearing.  He felt the warm trickle of blood down his back, and his eyes watered with tears of fright and confusion.  His wings suddenly stopped tearing, and he found himself on the floor, surrounded by blood, bare bones jutting from his scarlet-coated back.

    "My sacrifice is made.  The Glorious shall live, and evil is to be cast away...  and for it to happen, I had to join it."



    The soldier Atarius turned from his troupes, gazing into the eyes of the creature before him.  A hunched, ruby-red being; his skin actually appearing as a waterfall of blood over normal skin.  His head was surrounded by a halo of deep darkness, and he was framed by bare bones, interspersed with leather as delicate as spiderwebs.  In his hand was a sword of ice and fire, twisting into a nether so fearsome as to send chills up his spine.  The undead and dying lurched around him, respectively serving and cursing the dominant being and his ironclad will.

    "There he is, men...  the one who shall destroy all that is good.  Evil shall triumph, all because of his contemptable face.  He disgusts me.  What could ever vindicate his coward face?"

    The fallen angel stopped a moment, fought back a sob, and cast his sword into the flesh of the armies before him.

    kwerkeyPosted: 01-08-2002 22:43:11
    I disagree.
    Life is more fun when you wake up at just the right time.

    I only got 5 hours of sleep on Monday (the night between Sunday and Monday, that is), half as much as I was used to over vacation, and when I woke up I felt better than I had when I got 10 or 12 hours.  So I guess it's just waking up when your brainwaves are at their peak anyway or something.
    KorivakPosted: 01-08-2002 22:45:47
       I have friends like that, but not me.  If I don't get enough sleep, I feel it, no matter what time I wake up.  Five hours of sleep until six AM feels just as bad as five hours until noon.
    kwerkeyPosted: 01-08-2002 22:50:21
    No, I woke up early.  I got five hours from 1:00 to 6:00 Monday morning, and felt better than when I slept 2:00-11:00.

    Just cause I figure Rich will close my topic, I thought I'd repost it here:

    Well, I was going to write something big and long pointing out all of the flaws that Rich has as a forum moderator, but if you can’t see them for yourself, then you’re dumber than he is.
    Sure, he’s an okay guy, but he should not be in charge of a forum.

    Of course most of you will just say that I’m wrong, and that he’s doing a fine job and all, but do you know what? I don’t care. It’s not my problem that he has a problem with me just because I disagree with him (he’ll say it’s because I’m a spammer and a trouble maker, but I didn’t even start that until the 3rd time he banned me, and then only because I was fed up).

    What am I even doing posting here? I have no clue. The site has no content that I’m interested in, and the forum is the only real reason to keep it open, and even the forum isn’t reason enough for someone to come back. I said it back before the War Room degenerated into chaos, and nobody listened to me then, but this forum is becoming a second War Room.

    The community that I used to talk with is mostly gone now. Some people post here from time to time, but not terribly often. All we have now is stupid newbies who think they’re better than everyone else, and folks who argue semantics all day.

    Well, I have no reason to be posting here, so I guess I won’t.  I just thought I’d say goodbye before leaving. If you want me, you can probably find me in the Rubber Room or on ICQ, but not here.

    - Psycho Sam!

    (Oh, and isn’t it ironic that Vash was authorized when Poop wasn’t, even though Vash was as real as Chambli, and Poop was really the guy sitting next to me in class last summer who doesn’t think very much of Rich for not authorizing him. =P)

    We should form some kind of union or band where if one of us gets banned we split up the sentence between all the members. Instead of one person banned for 70 days, 10 could be banned for a week. The righteous shall prevail!

    Korivak:
       I, as in almost all things relating to the internet in general and this forum in specific, don't really care about this whole mess.  I only care about two things, really...my real life friends, and this, the Random Thread.
       The forum is a nice way of spending time with my friends when we can't spend time together in real life...it's like going to the movies or for a long walk together, but at pretty much any time or place.  So when one of my friends gets banned, it makes the forum a hell of a lot less appealing.  When one of my friends gets banned for stupid reasons, I will come in on his side and support him.
       Well, now I have no friends for at least 90 days, and no posting access for 120 days, and you know what?  I don't care.  I've never really been comfortable here; there's always some distasteful sub-layer to this place I can never quite ignore.  The code is so-so, but less functional than it was before the upgrade.  There's no real common interest or purpose to the site.  There's no real content.  All there is are my friends, and a thread that satisfied my desire for a forum until I finally got a forum of my own a couple of weeks ago.  Or is there?  The only things binding me to this forum are gone, and I have no reason to ever come back, nor do I really want to.
       All my friends have left, been thrown out, even, over something that shouldn't be a big deal, but somehow is, and have relocated to a new forum.  My forum.  So I'm happy.  I've got all the parts of the forum I like, and none of the parts I don't.
       So why the spamfest?  Childish prank, sure.  Fairly stupid, admitadly.  Hypocritical, after a fashion.  Irony.  Karma.  Amusement.  Protest.  And maybe, just maybe, a bit of vindictiveness.  But not much.  Rich may be a poor admin, but he's not such a bad person.  I just don't like the way he runs a forum.  I didn't back when I first made The Sanctuary, and I don't now.  He's an okay fellow, but I wouldn't post on his forum without a reason, and guess what I just lost...

    *nods*  That's an excellent post.  We were hyper, bored, and suddenly we were presented with more than a few reasons to slap this forum around something fierce.

    My intention was never to cause great anger and hostility among the locals; however, they were never truly much of a consideration to commence with.  Again, those searching for answers shall find very few.  Korivak's explanation of our antics is as close to whole as one is bound to come.

    RStefan01 himself has been a constant thorn in the side of my friend Psycho Sam! for quite some time, now.  He has also made his share of poor decisions which have affected me quite personally.  Knowing our forum careers were most definitely coming to a close, we unleashed a whirlwind of childish spam that was quite amusing to the three of us at the time.

    Therefore, I have no regrets.  Despite poor examples presented by Osiris that present us as vandals guilty of manslaughter, no one was harmed.  The forum will contine to exist so long as RStefan01 himself wishes for it to do so.  Life shall go on.

    And that's about it.

    Shawn:  I personally apologize to anyone--whom I respect or consider myself friends with (which is a select, few forumers to begin with)--who I have inconvenienced with the actions undertaken by myself and my friends, for what it is worth.

    Korivak:  If anyone was really hurt in this whole thing, then I apologize.  It was just a little thing we did for whatever reason, and there's no big motive behind it, no hidden reason for it.  We hardly even gave it any thought at all, in fact.  There, I said it.  It all means nothing.  But I'll still take responsibility for it.  But it's not like I reget it either.  Besides, it's just a bit of text...no one actually got hurt, nothing got damaged.  I am sure Psycho Sam! feels the same [(homo)sexual intercourse] I do, even if he won't say anything about it because he's not posting anymore...

    Neighbour returned Witnesses' cold call

    BY ADAM FRESCO

    A MOTHER of three children became so fed up with Jehovah’s Witnesses calling at her home that she interrupted their Sunday service by banging on their church door and offering them free magazines.
    Jane White, 35, who has been visited by the religious group every month for more than 12 years, spent 30 minutes on the steps of the Kingdom Hall, in Peacehaven, East Sussex, until police moved her on. Afterwards she said:

    “I’ve never done anything like this before, but I had a visit from the Jehovah’s Witnesses the day before and that was the straw which broke the camel’s back.

    “I’ve been having regular visits from them in the 12 years I’ve lived in Peacehaven. It is not the religion I object to, it is just the intrusion into my privacy which I find annoying.”

    She added: “I timed my visit for 10am because I knew it would be in the middle of a service. One member of the congregation thought it was funny, others took it seriously.

    “I tried to hand out free magazines to see if they would like a copy, just like the copies of The Watchtower the Jehovah’s Witnesses hand out. Nobody seemed to want them though.”

    Paul Gillies, a spokesman for Jehovah’s Witnesses in Britain, said: “If someone states they do not want our representatives to call we make a note and avoid calling.”

    The hypercrucifix



    For the ones not mathmatically inclined, that thing Hey-Zeus is nailed to is an unfolded hypercube.  Just as a cube is like a 3D square, a hypercube is like a 4D cube.  You make a cube from a square by attaching four line segments perpendicular to the plane the square is in and adding another square on top; you make a hypercube by adding six segments perpendicular to 3D space and attaching cubes to the ends.  Actually, I think it may be eight segments (one at each vertex), but I was told six.
    BevyPosted: 01-19-2002 23:18:15
    I do not see how it is 4d.

    I see how this could make a 2 block x 2 block x2 block cube, but how is it 4d?
    BevyPosted: 01-19-2002 23:25:19
    To make a 4d cube consisting of eight blocks, couldn't you just take one block, hold it out in front of you, and then move it to each of the other seven appropriate positions?
    kwerkeyPosted: 01-19-2002 23:28:00
    It's 3D because it's been unfolded.  Example, you can unfold a cube into six squares arranged like this (in it's 612 byte glory):



    That 3D shape in the painting is what you get when you unfold a hypercube into eight cubes.
    \n\n
    BevyPosted: 01-19-2002 23:36:32
    Yes, I know, what you mean, but when this 3d ultracube or whatever would be folded up again, how does that make it a 4d cube? Or do you mean that it's, like, kind of a hypocthetical cube only based on the unfolded 3d position?

    Also, am I right in my last post, about how one could potentially create a 4d cube?
    kwerkeyPosted: 01-19-2002 23:38:34
    No, smartass, when yuo're talking about 4D geometry, they're all spacial dimensions, not a time dimention =p

    Here's a java 3D representation of a tesseract.  A tesseract is another 4D shape, something like a hypercube (in fact, it may be the same as a hypercube, I'm not sure).
    http://pw1.netcom.com/~hjsmith/WireFrame4/tesseract.html

    Here's a better one.  Hit the "stereo" button twice so you see two spinning shapes, then do what you would do for those stereoscopic pictures (the black and white dots that, when you cross your eyes, makes a 3D picture) to see the thing rotating in 3 dimensions.  It's still (near?) impossible to visualize the whole 4D shape in your mind, but it's a little better.

    EDIT:  Fucking IkonCode screws up all my HTML
    \n\n
    BevyPosted: 01-19-2002 23:45:23
    *dimensions

    How could 4d geometry not be based around the fourth dimension? Am I wrong in thinking that the popular theory is that the 4th dimension is time, or are we simply talking different theories?
    kwerkeyPosted: 01-19-2002 23:51:13
    Nature doesn't give numbers to things.  You can call the 4th spacial dimension the 5th dimension if you'd like, it makes no difference as to what it is.

    Time is another dimension, but it's irrelevent in geometry (at least any of the geometry I've seen).
    \n\n
    BevyPosted: 01-19-2002 23:57:22
    Humans do give numbers to things however.

    I see where we got confused, I believe. You called it a 4d cube, as in consisting of 4 dimensions. I thought you meant it was a cube corresponding or existing in the fourth dimension.

    Excellent. I was blind but now I see.

    Now... let's say we were talking specifically about the 4th dimension, would my 2 x 2 x 2 cube theory be appropriate?
    kwerkeyPosted: 01-20-2002 00:08:31
    Err, I'm not quite sure what you meant.  Elaborate on that.
    BevyPosted: 01-20-2002 00:11:46
    On my idea?
    kwerkeyPosted: 01-20-2002 00:18:16
    Wait, that's what you meant.

    No, that isn't a 4D shape, it's just a cube that is 8 times as massive as any of the smaller cubes.
    BevyPosted: 01-20-2002 00:31:45
    No..

    It isnt anything but one cube being moved around unless it is referred to in terms of time dimensia.
    OsirisPosted: 01-20-2002 00:48:59
    Note: Click the stereo button twice to get the two images-- then look at them crosseyed until the two images overlap and come into focus.  Then it has depth.  Pretty neat.

    And a terresact could be five dimensions if you believed there was a concept of time in this five-dimensional existence, so that might help you wrap your brain around it.

    kwerkeyPosted: 01-20-2002 00:52:50
    I already said that crosseyed thing =p

    In and of itself, though, a tesseract (or hypersphere, or whatever) doesn't have time any more than a square or sphere has time.
    OsirisPosted: 01-20-2002 00:55:47

    OMFG I am such a stinky jerk!  So you did!

    : In and of itself, though, a tesseract (or hypersphere, or whatever) doesn't have time any more than a square or sphere has time.

    Yeah I know, I just thought that would help bevy understand where the missing "time dimension" went.  4D objects, like 3D objects, would presumably exist in a universe that possesses the properties of cause and effect (time)

    In a purely mathematical sense, it's all the same, afaik

    "Apparently, there are these microscopic worms that are hermaphrodites by nature, and during the courtship process they are able to assume the female or male role. The most desireable role is that of the male, because it allows the worm to continue to distribute its genetic material while the "female" has to waste time in gestation before it can have another go, so to say. So before they have sex, they fight, and the winner gets to be male. So these worms have developed some rather aggressive sexual adaptations, including acidic sperm that eats away at the partner during one of these duels, comically called penis fencing."

    I'm actually used to laughing out loud everywhere, in public.  I'm loud that way.  It happens sometimes that I'm thinking stuff up, and end up thinking something funny, and I either smile or laugh, for no apparent reason to others.  I get looks too.  My GF loves it though.

    I even got told by a stranger once:  "El que solo se ríe de su picardía se acuerda".  It's an old saying that loosely translates into:  "He who laughs alone, his mischief is remembering".  Or something like that.  :)

    The books I hate the most are the dummy ones.  Who'd buy books that are actually insulting readers with their title?

    Rather than spam the Forum Access thread I will put this here. After reading the banned posters list I think the forum has an unofficial theme song "Ban Canada". Set to the tune of "Blaime Canada" from SouthPark.  *giggles*  or not. It just made me think of it.  I think I have been staring at code to long and dealing with mother too much.. eep.

    yes indeed!

    in other news

    if you have the x-men dvd (this applies to anyone with the x-men dvd)

    go to the theatrical trailers/tv spots thing. then push the "left" button on your remote. it should highlight a rose. press the "enter" button on your remote to see a funny gag clip involving spider man.

    in the commentaries section, highlight the main menu button and press up twice. this will highlight the dogtags that are part of the background. hit enter, see what beast and the blob were supposed to look like.

    yay.  the spider man clip is actually somewhat funny.

    BrawnfirePosted: 02-17-2002 02:04:34
    I've been referred to as "Brawny."

    Once by a girlfriend, no less.

    In a moment of rather loving conversation.

    Needless to say, that put me off, slightly.

    "I love you, don't be sad Brawny."

    It doesn't work...
    El cazadorPosted: 02-18-2002 19:12:59
    But "brawny" sounds cuuuuuuute!

    Almost like a dog name.  "Here Brawny... here brawny, FETCH!"

    :)

    My girlfriend has called me "el cazador" on very few ocasions, usually in a slightly mocking tone or when it's something related to the internet.  It'd never stick as a nickname, since my real name (Alex) is already a nickname.

    Something I just got in my mail.


    Subject:  Interesting moment in time

    Believe it or not but 8.02pm on February 20 this year will be an historic moment in time.
    It will not be marked by the chiming of any clocks or the ringing of bells, but at that precise time, on that specific date, something will happen which has not occurred for 1,001 years and will never happen again.

    As the clock ticks over from 8.01pm on Wednesday, February 20,time will, for sixty seconds only, read in perfect symmetry 2002, 2002,2002, or to be more precise - 20:02, 20/02, 2002.

    This historic event will never have the same poignancy as the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month which marks Armistice Day, but it is an event which has only ever happened once before, and is something which will never be repeated.
    The last occasion that time read in such a symmetrical pattern was long before the days of the digital watch and the 24-hour clock - at 10.01am on January 10, 1001.
    And because the clock only goes up to 23.59, it is something that will never happen again.


    A passing thought....you'd have to read it the way we say the day and month because americans always put the month first, in which case it would be 02/20 so that doesnt work.

    My 2 year old thought my keyboard needed a drink. First of sticky cordial,then the next day,of coke.
    My keyboard found it not to its liking and refused to work completely a day later.

    My keyboard was a $45 keyboard expensive for me as I dont spend money on keyboards, i'd rather have a faster system.

    Anyway I now have a new cheap keyboard. The only good thing about it when compared to the broken one is that all its keys work.
    Other than that I hate it. It has a big enter key and a small backspace and its just plain evil. Sadly I can not afford a better one right now so it will have to do :-(

    Spilled keyboard to Dishwasher top rack.

    After that, just let it dry for a couple days, preferably in the sun, but you can dry it in a lit place in the home (it takes a good while longer that way)

    It should be fine, so long as it's dry.

    We'll all be wanting this game as soon as its out I'm sure. An article from today's news.


    Britney now a cyber pop princess

    Britney Spears has undergone hours of having her body scanned as she became a video game star.

    The 20-year-old singer is to star in computer game Britney's Dance Beat, which features a three-dimensional version of her on screen.

    Spears, whose film debut Crossroads has just been released in US, has been paid a "seven-figure" fee for allowing her likeness to be used in the game, the New York Daily News reported yesterday.

    Liz Pieri, of the game's manufacturer THQ Incorporated, told the newspaper: "It looks like Britney, it moves like Britney, it's the next best thing to Britney.

    "It's simply wild."

    The singer had her body scanned in detail to make sure her electronic version acts and moves realistically - complete with leather catsuit, flowing locks and ample cleavage.

    Ms Pieri said the singer was pleased with the result.

    "Britney's very protective of her image, but was quite pleased with our rendering," she said.

    "Audition to Britney's most popular songs to see if you can keep up with the other dancers," the company says on its website.

    "If you're really good, you'll get access to exclusive video and concert footage."

    Company bosses at THQ hope it will compete with video-game pin-up Lara Croft's Tomb Raider series.

    I know JavaScript.


    Java != Javascript is a very true statement. JavaScript was simply named for a marketing ploy. I've worked with both languages and JavaScript seems more BASIC like to me.
    MistressBluePosted: 03-13-2002 04:53:25
    Ok thanks. Now I know who to bug when I get out of my depth.
    Dan the Tuba ManPosted: 03-13-2002 05:52:31
    Have you ever really programmed before? If so, then JavaScript is incredibly easy to pick up. Once you learn the basic concepts of programming, everything else is just learning syntax and structure. There are a lot of things that I like about JScript, a lot of the things it has makes programming for it easy. Yet, it is limited to web pages only and not as powerful as Java or C. Not even close. If you have ever programmed in either of those languages, then JScript shall not trouble you at all.

    No I havent done any. Only html. The certificate is "Cert IV Web Development". The aim is php and by the end of the year I am supposed to be able to build you a massive secure shopping site. Remembering, I am doing this part time and only attend college one 8 hour day a week. A lot of the study we are expected to do at home.
    OsirisPosted: 03-13-2002 08:46:38
    Javascript is only easy up until the point when you actually try to do anything (with the DOM).  

    "Teddy: Don't believe his lies"

    Javascript is only good for a couple things as far as web scripting is concerned, form field validation, cookie manipulation, and cross-site 'javascript includes'

    Formatting tonight. I've given XP a decent go but it annoys me too often.

    Tonight was the last straw. I got sent a copy of Serious Sam The Second Encounter in the mail from the US and it seems XP and my Voodoo 5 and Serious Sam dont go well together. So I love my V5, so its XP that is going.

    Back to 2K.

    So hey if people are being naughty and noone gets banned its because something went wrong or I fell asleep before I got it finished.

    Lord TreyPosted: 03-18-2002 11:20:27
    DebtAngel is right of course...the iMac Voodoo 5 is a fine piece of hardware that outperformed the competition that came out at the same time it did, the 3rd party support is just crappy/nonexistant.
    MistressBluePosted: 03-18-2002 14:53:16
    My new game and my V5 are running excellently with 2K.


    Now who wants to be banned. I live for my morning shower. It is one of my more enjoyable parts of the day and the hot water system just blew up and half way through my favorite morning activity the FUCKING WATER WENT COLD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Now I suppose I should be grateful it did it now (beginning of the cold season) when its still pretty warm and a cold shower didnt entirely kill me.

    *Looks forward to Durins later today*

    That's dirty. In the doubleplusungood way.
    El cazadorPosted: 03-23-2002 07:10:48
    It's not the subject, the time or the amount of pages that gets you in trouble, it's the lack of interest.   "Sometimes i go "Why do i have to sacrifice a beautiful weekend doing this piece of crap?"

    Then I end up slaving off late weekday nights wondering why I didn't do it over the weekend.

    It's a vicious circle.
    MistressBluePosted: 03-23-2002 07:36:40
    Its the subject. I find it incredibly boring.
    We spent 4 hours every tuesday morning talking about web site design and client requirements.  Web site design is boring. As to client requirements your average client doesnt have a clue what they want so why learn about it! I will be soooo happy when this module is done with. I still have no desire to start this paper. I will do as El caz says and do it monday night and get cranky because I didnt do it earlier.

    Well I got out of doing my assignment temporarily. I spent the evening and half the night at the hospital instead. My 2 year old daughter had a really high temperature and I couldnt get it to come down so off to the hospital we went. Hours and hours later we are home. She is full of drugs and has more to take over the next few days. I am tired and hungry. But she is a lot better than she was earlier tonight. She also has a new pink beanie baby teddy for being such a good girl at the hospital.
    Now my assignment is sitting here not done but I really dont give a fuck.

    Well my 6 year old while waiting for her school bus this morning lost her hat and it fell near this womans car so Sierra goes to pick up her hat and the woman yells out of her yard "Get away from my car you little asshole".

    She's lucky I dont go up and deck the bitch. But getting myself arrested for assault wouldnt get me anywhere.

When Rich began to go toward the moose, named Eustace, it denied Venereal Disease, and licked Big Z's manly elbow. Then, it excreted hormones into undertow's left bum. Moreso, I have discussed our policy on the rather nasty influence of foul-mouthed communists. Yet, them pretzels ain't too sticky for Tridus, who gots the pretzels in SM_007's nekked, salad-covered elephant. Even today, he touched John's sweaty neck and then Dave ate Tridus' elbow, but without sin-related apples. Boobs make euphoric poker chips!

    A story I found on another forum. Wow is all I can say. I think I'd be taking it further.

    Here's the link but I copied the whole story.

    About halfway down Poster called Some321



    I have had the most humiliating experience at Best Buy in Tucker, GA. This is what happened.

    I have been monitoring this thread from Feb-March, ever since the day this scam happened.

    So I went to BB at Tucker,GA last Friday armed with the receipts, my original and the copies I printed from the site. I was dumb enough to trust BB and I didnt have anyone to take along with me for the ride. I know I should have.

    There was only one card left on the aisle, so I grabbed with a couple of other things (a 80GB HD and a Platinum Audigy) and went to the counter. There was this fat bitch who told me that six or seven people have been trying to PM with the same receipt there and its not possible. She said that the receipt was a fake, the guy who created it is no longer with BB etc. She asked me if I wanted to talk to the manager, so I said yes.

    Out comes the biggest @#$% called Rod, whos the Store manager there. I politely explained why I am there. He asked me to follow him to a separate room. I was kinda hesitant at first, but I thought no better of it and followed him. Inside we sat down and started going through the receipts. Then another guy, a sales manager called Paul McKim comes in, and suddenly Rod jumps out and drags him out whispering something. Rod comes back in and we start going through the same shit again. I was polite at all times and I asked him whether he though the receipt was fake. He was giving me all fucked up reasons and all I wanted was a yes or no.

    15 mins later, cops walk in. Then I knew this bastard was leading me on all the time, that he was just waiting there, making sure I was there till the cops arrive. The three cops who turned up (all black officers from Dekalb county) had the brain the size of an almond. I was pretty sure they were in cahoots with the BB guys, anyway I still kept my cool and explained to them the reason why I was there. Half an hour goes by and I am still alone in the room with the cops talking to these assholes.

    In comes on of the cops, cuffs me (God that hurts) and then tells me that I was cuffed so that I wouldnt hurt anyone. Yeah right!. So here I am arrested for the first time of my life and humiliated. Then they told me that I was being arrested for Fraud and that I am being taken to the Dekalb Office and a detective would take it up from there on. They brought me out amidst the whole store, but I kept my head high and I was smiling, because I hadnt done anything wrong and I had nothing to worry about.

    Cops took me on a joy ride for half an hour and it was damn uncomfortable ride. Once there, they took me to this holding pen alone and made me wait there. In comes one black lady, who looked far more reasonable and intelligent than all the three cops combined, and she told me that she is going to talk to the BB guy (Paul) first and then myself. I waited there for almost an hour (the whole thing took from 11:30 till 3:30) and then she came in and asked me for my story. I explained her everything. She tells me then that she does not believe BB's story that I forged the receipt. I work as an Analyst for a firm in Atlanta and I was looking quite respectable in my work clothes. anyway, she told me that BB does not want me as a customer and I told her that I would be happy to take my business elsewhere.

    She told me that they had changed their tactics from "Forging the receipt" to "Trespassing - not leaving the store even when I were asked to". I told her that all the time the a@@#$$ manager Rod, wanted to keep me there so that the cops would come in, and never he asked me to leave the store. She sympathised with me and told me that they were letting me go free.

    I made sure that she ask the cops who brought me in, take me back to the BB parking lot to pick my car up.

    Well there it is. the whole story. I dont know what I would do now. I would like to see those idiots fired, but since the whole BB management is a farce anyway, I dont think any of my complaints would matter.

    Hope you do well with
    OsirisPosted: 04-29-2002 00:59:31
    I'm about 90-95 WPM, with around 95-98 percent accuracy, although that was typing as fast as I could.  I know for sure I don't type code that quickly, so.

    I found a little program to measure it.  Some of the tests are locked without a registration key, but you can take the first few tests without one.

    El cazadorPosted: 04-29-2002 01:14:31
    I type with two fingers and looking at the keyboard.  The other eight are lazy.

    I used to draw little soldiers with the machine on typing class, hence why I never learned.

    And just because this is the random thread, I will bother to explain/bore you with how I drew the little soldiers.  It has to be done on a manual typing machine.

    1) type o several times, then pull the cylinder thing back without jumping to the next line.

    2) type - for as many times as you have o's and you'll have finished drawing the little soldier's heads and helmets.

    3) jump down a bit, but not a full line.

    4) type 0 to make the bodies, making sure they connect with the heads.  Move back and type / over the 0's to make the rifles.

    5) jump down a bit again, but not a full line.

    6) Type W to make the legs, wich connect with the 0's.

    7) Jump down a bit more, but not a full line, then type ¨ to make the shoes.  Make sure they end up under the W's pointy sides.

    tadaaaaa!  You'll have effectively wasted your time and flunked typing class!  :)

    Which just begs the question:

    What was your project
    psychodrummerPosted: 04-30-2002 11:26:26
    It was the 5th project of the year and basically what we had to make was a program that modifies a customer database.  The user can look up a customer record, add one, delete one, or modify one.  That's the gist of it.  Sounds small but it's the biggest project we've done yet.  It's also the last.  Although once I get a job in the business world I'll most likely be doing this but in a bigger scale.
    OsirisPosted: 04-30-2002 11:48:41
    Probably.

    Usually it's easier to write the database code yourself rather than using the data binding feature of VB controls.
    psychodrummerPosted: 04-30-2002 12:53:53
    No, we didn't use a database for this program but a text file.  The next project, if I choose to do it, does use a database.

    I think Win2k is good enough.  No need to get the most recent OS especially since it's still being fixed and patched up.  Of course, all the other OS's are too, but XP, being as new as it is, has more holes than the other OS's.

    But if you don't mind that, then go ahead with XP if you want it.

    Postulate of Youthful Feminine Horsepower

    Any teenage feemale with a new muscle car her parents bought for her will drive like crap.  Mustangs seem to increase their crappy driving geometrically.

    Corollary of the PYFH

    Cars painted silver or black maximize the crappy driving.  "Un-megacool" colors such as dark blue make the effect of the postulate nearly nonexistant.


    Postulate of Youthful Masculine Stupidity

    Teenage boys think that putting street-sweeper tires on a truck make their penis bigger.  However, the enlargement does not occur unless they nearly kill somebody by not paying attention to what they're doing.

    The technology of the G4 is far more advanced then anything intel has put into the market. Their processor may run at 800Mhz, but it goes a hell of a lot faster then their top of the line processor P4 2.53(Don't remember the exact number). Plus the processor is a lot cooler. I know this guy at a local computer store was giving me the tour of the G4.

    Does anyone know where I can get a keygen program for the Palm App called PiDirect or PiDirect II?

    I recently bought a memplug module for my Visor Platinum for the purpose of memory expansion. Well, the thing doesn't work as it leads on. The consumer is lead to believe this module can seamlessly access the external flash card as if it were just more RAM on your handheld. This does work-ONLY by purchasing PiDirect for 20 dollars or PiDirect II for 30 dollars. Basically, you are buying a "code" from them that will unlock the software that is already there. Considering the module was 35 dollars to begin with, its a large sum and I do not want to pay for it and would rather put that money else where, such as a flash card or two.

    Can anyone help. Anyone in here good at cracking? If I can't find something that can uncrack this for me, I will pay any of you the 30 dollars to crack the program or show me how. Its better spent that way.
    DebtAngelPosted: 07-24-2002 09:39:31
    That's odd.

    The 2 MB module built into my MiniJam works pretty much exactly like main PalmOS memory. I have to use their little app to move blocks between the main memory and the module, but the menu will quite happily show programs on both.

    You sure a key didn't just come with the thing?
    DebtAngelPosted: 07-24-2002 21:32:14
    1.
    Now that I know what that mempack thingy does, just pay the $20 for the ridiculous amount of storage space.

    2.
    I am typing this on an iBook running MacOS 9.2. I opted not for the one I was talking about in the prior post, as the extra costs of shipping it across the border quickly soured the deal for me.

    However, the fiancee of one of co-workers is selling his iBook. Apparently he rarely uses it, and needs the money due to some sort of sob story which was not recounted to me.

    Anyhoo, this will be a third hand laptop, and the first guy who owned it failed to include Mac OS X. This is a problem, because all I really want to do is play with OS X. Not being able to ping another machine really, very much, turly bothers the hell out of me.

    Long story short, unless I get OS X on this thing, I'm not buying it, but if I can, I will. But I get to play with it tonight anyway.

    While I'm here, I feel like giving a mini review.

    This thing is *silent*. Dead silent. "Is this thing on" silent. The fonts this uses in the browser look *amazing*. Hell, the apple logo glows. How frigging cool is that?

    I can't stand Mac OS 9. I hate it, I hate it, I hate it. Did I mention my hatred for it? It's terrible beyond terrible. This keyboard is a little on the freaky side. The left side is bouncing in a manner that I'm not altogether thrilled with as I type this. And the trackpad won't send a click event if you tap it. you have to tap the button under it.

    Oh, a sound. I think the hard drive span up or something. Yep, that was the hard drive. I hop ist spins down soon; I was enjoying the silence.

    Anyhoo, much fun is to be had by all. Can't wait to see what OS X looks like on this thing, other than slow.

    Why would I want to pay 30 dollars for a palm application that I already have, just can't use? I don't want to pay 30 dollars for a one byte string. Besides, it doesn't come with any memory preinstalled. You have to buy a compact flash card separately in order to even use this thing. CF cards are not cheap.

    To bad this thing card use my microdrive, then I'd have a 1 GB of storage space.
    DebtAngelPosted: 07-24-2002 23:35:57
    What in the name of God does a Palm need with 128 MB of memory, exactly? How many addresses are you storing?!?

    And I'm aware of the cost of Flash memory, as my MiniJam takes MMC cards.

    The Mempack thingy looks great as a backup device. If you treated the flash cards as floppies, or as DAT tapes, you'd be fine. Hell, if the Handspring supports VFS, you're fine. All you need PiDirect for is if your Handspring/Palm apps don't support VFS. And $30 is not a lot to ask for a half decent utility like that.

    And kwerkey, is it a working calculator? Kill the Terran Civilians to enter in numbers, then kill the Hydralisk to get the answer?
    kwerkeyPosted: 07-25-2002 00:53:14
    It's not working yet, but I'm planning on implementing a full-adder and then a parallel addition unit.  Then I'll move on to subtraction.

    Basically.  There are five beacons right now on five separate platforms each with its own unit.  The whole affair represents a button, and moving the unit to the beacon presses the button.  There's a 0, a 1, a plus, a minus, and an enter (It's a binary calculator right now, I don't really want to even try to figure out how to create binary-decimal conversion gates).  It works like a normal calculator.

    I suppose I could save some time in the long run by making it an RPN calculator.

    Basically, I am really into comparing the transaltion of the bible. Since I do not have a laptop, my Palm must suffice. There is a Palm app called "Bible Reader" that supports and supplies multiple version of the bible. There are about 30 versions in all with more to come. I want to have all of them with me at all times so that I can study, research, and compare the translation of the bible.

    The bible takes up a lot of space, surprisingly. Right now, I can only fit 4 on my meager 8MB of ram. With the extra space, I plan on putting a dictionary, a theasaurus, and books.

    I use my Palm everyday for various reasons and it has become as important as my PC.

    AMD Palladium To Include M$ Security


     September 20th, 2002 - by Andrew Charnley - 4 comments  

    Another stage in Microsoft's five-year plan to control our PCs and the Internet will kick off early next year with the launch of Advanced Micro Devices' latest chip, Opteron, aimed at business uses.

    The new microprocessor, which will run both existing 32-bit applications and specially recompiled 64-bit programs, will support "Palladium", a set of security and privacy features Microsoft is building into its products. Both AMD and Microsoft are members of the Trusted Computing Platform Alliance (TCPA), a cabal of 170 product makers developing a uniform approach to security and copyright protection. AMD has been working on the "trusted client" approach with Wave Systems Corp for two years.

    AMD's chips will increase the security of those accessing programs and the Internet, says company marketer Patrick Moorhead. But it will also refuse to play certain content if it is not digitally signed by Microsoft or an authorised party. For the end-to-end security features to work as envisioned by the TCPA, all parties along the network chain must build in complementary security features. Chips from the likes of AMD and Intel will only decode information, such as audio and video, if it comes with an unlocking key. Hard-drive makers will make drives that won't record certain types of information, and so on. It is envisaged that once the TCPA system is fully functioning, our PCs would quietly report to authorities any unauthorised content on our machines. PCs and other devices would also refuse to play content, such as a music CD, tied to another device, and may be instructed by a remote server to delete information from the owner's hard drive.

    Moorhead, AMD's vice-president of consumer advocacy, dismisses consumer complaints that the ever-tightening noose designed to stop online piracy, known as Digital Rights Management (DRM), will erode existing rights. But he says AMD believes that these technologies should be "opt-in" - that the user should control it - not government mandates. Hollywood and the music industry are lobbying hard to make DRM mandatory in all new devices, and existing laws here and in the US make it a crime to switch it off.

    Moorhead says the end user has been "unfairly branded" as a thief, and he believes most people would buy content online if it was available but it is being held back by a skittish film and recording industry. But Dan Bricklin, computing pioneer and co-developer of the world's first popular spreadsheet, VisiCalc, says attempts to copy-protect works are a "simple fix" to preserve out-dated business models.

    Further, he wrote, using legislation to bolster technological methods would be "bad for society", hobbling technology. "Copy protection, like poor environment and chemical instability before it for books and works of art, looks to be a major impediment to preserving our cultural heritage."

    See, I'm a coffee lover myself.. I roast my own coffee fresh every evening in the garage, and every morning I brew up a strong pot of Kenyan or some Zimbabway peaberry or if I feel like splurging, a little Kona.  But one thing remains constant, you drink what you roast within a couple days because after a day or two of roasting, all coffees beging to break down due to exposure to oxygen and they become stale.  The difference between two-day old coffee and a week old coffee is very much noticable.

    Now my understanding with tea is that it is less succeptable to exposure to oxygen, but if you can, you should still try to use the loose-leaf kind as it minimizes exposure and surface area until right when you are ready to drink it.  It looks like you have a little of both kinds in there, although I can't be certain.

    We've got this company up in Chiriquí province who makes and exports good coffee.  I'm told they've got an ISO 9000 quality standard and are very close to getting another for environment treatment or some such.   My old boss's father used to work there.

    Fun thing is they only export.  They don't sell that locally.  And among their buyers is Starbucks, and we don't have any Starbucks around here, so we don't get to taste good stuff that comes from our own soil.  :(

    Doesn't affect me since I don't drink coffee, but on principle it sucks!

    Hey, do you know of the name of the farm?  I may have some here!
    OsirisPosted: 09-26-2002 12:24:37
    Is it from Hartmann Farm, aka "Songbird"? I know Hartmann farm is in Chirqui.. If that's the place, I've had some about six months (I don't have any now).  If I remember, it was a very clean coffee and all around delicious. I think they even won some awards

    I woke up sick this morning.

    Not only that, I woke up to the delightful sound of my cell ringing

    Tragically, the voice on the other end was wondering why I was 30 minutes late for practice.

    It really wasn't the best morning.

    To compesate, I'm not going to class today, ostensibly, I'm resting to relieve my illness.

    Unlike you, Mr. sick and spammy, the rest of us have school and work to attend to.  Although on a whole this forum seems to be not very active.  More like a low to medium level of activity all the time.

    But Melbourne sucks. Its weather is crappy. It rains way too much down there.


    Melbourne 'world's best city'
    By Paul Mulvey in London
    October 04, 2002

    MELBOURNE has been rated the best city in the world to call home.

    In a survey of 130 cities, the Economist Intelligence Unit rated Melbourne and Vancouver in Canada as the best cities in the world in which to live.

    Perth ranked third and Sydney, Brisbane and Adelaide tied in eighth place.

    Papua New Guinea's capital Port Moresby was rated the worst.

    The London-based EIU assessed the level of hardship for expatriates in the 130 cities, focussing on 12 factors including housing, education, recreational activities and climate.

    Melbourne's weather prevented it earning a perfect score of zero, so the Victorian capital and Vancouver scored one point, Perth two and Sydney, Adelaide and Brisbane were all on four.

    Sydneysiders won't agree, but Melbourne's weather, based on humidity rather than rain and temperature, was adjudged better.

    And while Sydney received a near-perfect score in all categories, a high level of violent crime, on a par with New York and London, cost it points.

    "Really we found very little wrong with Melbourne, it's just about the perfect city," said Bill Ridgers, editor of the EIU's Cost of Living survey.

    "It got a perfect score in every single category we looked at, apart from slight faults in its humidity and the availability of recreational activities, but that's really splitting hairs."

    Cities were rated on a five-point scale in the 12 categories, with five indicating extreme hardship.

    Sydney earned a two for violent crime, the same as New York and London, while Port Moresby scored five.

    Melbourne received 1.1 for recreational activities, falling down on the availability of concerts and theatre, while Sydney earned one. Perth received the lowest score of the five Australian cities surveyed.

    The survey was split into three categories with the health and safety section rating the threat of violent crime, the threat posed by terrorism or armed conflict and a health and disease assessment.

    Culture and environment looked at the availability of nightclubs, restaurants, sporting events, sporting facilities, theatres, cinemas and concerts, as well as studying climate, levels of corruption and the availability of consumer goods and services.

    The infrastructure section ranked transport, housing, education and utilities.

    Ridgers said although the survey was based on expats' experiences, all the factors were broad enough to apply to locals as well.

    London was joint 44th on 13 points along with Hong Kong, Lisbon, Madrid and San Francisco, while New York (16 points) was 52nd, equal with Dublin.

    Canada performed strongly with Toronto equal fourth with Vienna, Geneva and Zurich, while Montreal joined Sydney, Brisbane, Adelaide, Copenhagen, Dusseldorf, Frankfurt and Oslo in eighth and Calgary was ranked 16th.

    New Zealand cities Auckland and Wellington were both ranked 24th.

    I was born in Melbourne ya know. It wasn't so bad, you never needed to bother checking the weather report because 99 times out of a 100 it was going to rain and the hundreth time you were too pleased to be upset about any lack of prediction.

    Eh, I used to post somewhere around fifty a day on certain days of the week a year ago.  That's why I've got this ludicrous post count that beats people who've been from around here since "the beginning", whenever that was.

    January 2000, as far as post counts and registration dates are concerned. I really don't know how long ago it was that I had my first forum up here. It was similar to the Rubber Room, with the same threading style and no user registration required. It wasn't too long after the birth of the War Room though.

    The great thing about Stef's post count is that there's a number of time he's "annexed" thousands of posts unto his count, when accounts are deleted, for example.

    Not to demean his accomplishment or anything.
    RStefan01Posted: 10-11-2002 01:23:55
    I doubt it's even a hundred posts. Basin's post count was the only big boost, and I removed that and readded it to his account when I recreated it.

    I finally took some action re: the shittiness of my classes at present.
    Spanish... dropped
    Math... skipped
    Java... skipped
    Honors Seminar... I go when something's due.

    tragically, this seems to have absolutely NO effect on my grades.

    As for next semester...
    easy solution, transfer to a different school in the university, and switch majors!
    I'm now an Information Systems Operations Management Major in the School of Business Administration.

    my new and improved second semester schedule.

    ENGL106 Writing II (they made me, I swear) Wednesday 6-8:30
    HONR102/D102 History of the Development of Western Thought Lecture/Discussion  MWF12:30-1:20 + TTh 10-11:15
    ISOM247 Computer Concepts and Applications W 2:30-5
    PHED174 Weight Training MW 11:30-12:20 (nice GPA floater, I know the prof)
    THEO195 Intro to Islam TTh 1-2:15

    16 hours, and not one of 'em looks that hard.
    plus, only one class on Friday, two on Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday.

    I'm hoping this'll be the last semester of Friday class period, the business school here doesn't have Friday classes, and the only reason I'm in one is for that Honors seminar, which isn't required, but it fulfills about a third of the honors requirements.

    "Information Systems Operations Management Major"

    What the fuck is that?
    ()ver(V)indPosted: 10-24-2002 19:04:14
    it's like a computer/business major.

    Essentially I graduate, and demand money.
    Well, that's the theory anyhow.
    The-AtarisPosted: 10-24-2002 20:42:21

    Information Systems Operation Management

    Information Systems = the database.
    Operations = I use the database, I don't build it.
    Management = I get to have pointy hair.

    Okay, I'm lost too. I'm not sure what tangible benefit's going to come out of the course.

    *reads parent post*
    School for Business Adminsitration? Is that like DeVry?
    ()ver(V)indPosted: 10-25-2002 00:07:38
    SBA=Loyola University-Chicago School of Business Administration.

    As opposed to the Loyola University-Chicago College of Arts & Sciences, which is what I've been in for the past 3 months.

    in theory I'll graduate with a B.B.A. rather than a B.S., or if I'm crazy, I can get both, but I'm not feeling quite that insane, especially since it would require taking absolutely NO elective classes for the next 3 and a half years, and while I like computers, and I'm not opposed to business, I'd like to fit in a few personal interest classes along the way.

    *EDIT*
    DeVry is teh suck
    and as for pointy haired, yeah sometimes, depends on my mood.
    (Yeah, I know it's a Dilbert reference)

    *EDIT version 2.0*
    The purpose of the major is more for management than IT, the ideal is that you have a management type that understands enough about the technology that he's NOT the PHB from Dilbert.\n\n

    OsirisPosted: 10-25-2002 11:30:20
    No offense, but it always seemed to me that if you need to take a class on being a good manager, you probably aren't going to be one.   That sort of thing, in my opinion, is based upon a foundation of sound personal experience and requires a level of self-awareness and empathy that a class simply cannot teach.
    ()ver(V)indPosted: 10-25-2002 11:52:07
    I don't feel that I particularly need a class for management, however to get a business major, which is currently my intention and makes it hella easier to get a management level job, I'm required to take classes in management, the track I'm on only requires one or two "management" classes anyhow, most of the ones in the major are more business in general, ie. accounting, economics etc. (again, I understand most of that stuff without taking a class for 'em, but I've got to take them to get the degree.)  And there's a fair number of computer type classes involved, I'm doin Java now, then I've gotta do some web-development stuff, database management and such.  Plus some random classes I'm throwing in just for shits and giggles.
